Another inspiring trip to Wakefield / Support for Partners

This week I continued my Artists Residency at the Miscarriage Association in Wakefield. I was really struck by the new campaign ‘Support for Partners’  which looks to raise awareness of the feelings of partners and their need for support during miscarriage and pregnancy loss.

The cartoons commissioned by Graphic artist Kate Evans are particularly special.

You can also see more of Kate’s work  on her website, including a graphic cartoon about Miscarriage. (This is quite detailed and I should mention some viewers may find this distressing).

It is always an intense and emotional experience visiting the M.A. but it is also inspiring and rewarding and gives me new ideas and energy to continue my project.

I’ll be posting some more photos from my latest visit soon…
