Event description

Description

Lasting Impressions is a workshop for anyone who has experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or after birth who would like the opportunity to remember their baby. All family members (including children) are welcome. Participants are asked to bring memory objects to talk about in small groups. After chatting about their items they will be invited to make an ‘impression’ of these objects using paper and/or rubbing techniques. With permission we’ll take photos of the impressions and add these to a special photo-board alongside other lasting impressions produced by parents and families for the Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem exhibition.


About the exhibition

Remembering Baby: Life, Loss and Post-Mortem is a new exhibition that sensitively challenges taboos surrounding early-life loss. An interdisciplinary research team at the University of Sheffield has worked in collaboration with the British Institute of Radiology artist in residence, Hugh Turvey and sound artist Justin Wiggan, to design and create the exhibition which features a collection of work exploring early-life loss. Visual images, physical objects and sound installations will sensitively explore what happens when a baby dies, from both parental and professional perspectives.

The exhibition is inspired by the ‘End of’ or ‘Start of’ Life?’ research project and is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
