By  Lauren McLaughlin 2022 - 2023

Co-developed with Anna Oldfield, Ell Sinclair, Jessica Timmis, Leni Dothan and Medina Mukhayer.

A collaborative practice-research project carried out in 2022 with five other artists who are single mothers. We developed our ‘moanifesto’ in late 2022 through weekly online discussions where we shared our hopes, dreams and challenges with one another. We decided to use the term ‘moanifesto’ as a humorous and tactical move to reclaim our power when so often we are told to ‘stop moaning’.  Our aim was to create something that made visible our shared challenges but also made room for our individual voices.
