Increasing access to culture and sport through the Art for Baby programme at GoMA.
Friendships have been formed. They all end up in WhatsApp groups and they see each other every week. Week after week you see them growing in confidence.

Art for Baby

Art for Baby at the Gallery of Modern Art provides mums with a relaxing place to meet other parents. They can explore the GoMA with their babies in an informal atmosphere. Surrounded by sensory toys, the group then have the chance to work on their own creative projects and take home as a keepsake.
