Future Mothers working process is highly collaborative and transformative in nature, fluidly changing paper and cloth into image and idea, installation and performance. The Future Mothers project is also inherently educational in scope and seeks to bring individuals together for critical conversations and creative projects that focus on pressing social-political issues. The tent project was realized in collaboration with students, colleagues, and community members. The long term goal is to build on this model and expand the dynamic collaborations with educational communities, teachers and community leaders on curriculum and programming. In these community settings the tent and related works become a space and vehicle for learning and civic engagement.
