Join us for this exclusive event and book signing! Hear Hettie Judah, writer and exhibition curator, as she shares insights from her research for her book, Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood which explores the joys, messes, myths and mishaps of parenting through visual culture.

Hettie will be in conversation with Jelena Sofronijevic, Contemporary Art Curator at The Box. They will discuss some of the key themes from Hettie’s book and touring exhibition, Acts of Creation: On Art and Motherhood, drawing on artworks from ancient goddess artefacts to contemporary interpretations of pregnancy.
