Event description

Description

In the UK 1 in 4 Families are single parent families. That’s over 2 million single parents in the UK alone. And yet single parents, mothers in particular, have come under fire for years, been subject to damaging stereotypes from the media, politicians and society in general.


Are you a single parent living in Waltham Forest? What would you like others to understand about what it means to be a single parent? Would you like to meet and network with other single parents?

Libby Liburd, Walthamstow single mum activist, actor, writer and performer of one woman show Muvvahood, presents this interactive workshop for single parents. Libby wrote and presented the Guardian video ‘What is our problem with single mothers?’ which received over 2 million views: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/video/2017/jan/04/what-is-our-problem-with-single-mothers-video


When is the workshop?

Saturday 18th November 2.30pm-5.30pm

I can't get childcare - arrrgghh - can I bring my child?

This is a workshop aimed at adults but children are welcome to attend with parents

Who can attend this workshop?

To attend this workshop you should identify (or have identified) as a single/lone/solo parent at some point (either currently or in the past), or have been raised by a single parent.


What will happen at the workshop?

The workshop will be a safe space to the explore issues (and joys!) that surround parenting alone. There will be a chance for you to express your feelings and opinions about the emotional and practical aspects of single parenting. We’ll be working to create a short film or set of photographs that express what it’s like to be a single parent but there’s no pressure to perform, be ‘on camera’ or be identified. (we'll use placards in the style of the photograph)

This piece will then feature in the performance of Muvvahood at the Maud, Walthamstow on Thursday 23rd November 8pm:

How much does the workshop cost?
It's totally free. All you have to do is book on and also let me know how may (if any) children you'll have with you. Places are really limited though, so you must book in advance!

We will be sharing some light refreshments at the end of the workshop so we'll ask for donations towards cake and coffee but this is entirely optional.

Everyone that attends the workshop will be given a free ticket for the performance on 23rd November.
