Diverse and marginalised stories of motherhood — through the words and voices of those who have lived them. Voices of Motherhood was a unique performance trail, curated by verbatim theatre-maker Angela El-Zeind in collaboration with mothers who have unheard perspectives from across Brighton. BSL interpretation was provided.

“This project landed in my life at a very difficult time.

It helped me have another focus and helped me digest some of the grief and anxiety that I was struggling with. It gave me something to look forward to and I felt heard and held creatively and emotionally.”
