Introducing:

DIEP logoJune 2016

We are proud to announce that Project AfterBirth will soon be merging with the new Digital Institute for Early Parenthood (DIEP).

Opening in September 2016, DIEP will be the first organisation in the world dedicated to the global presentation and promotion of outstanding international ART and RESEARCH on all matters related to pregnancy, birth & new parenthood.

DIEP will devise, develop and deliver its own:

– rolling ARTISTIC PROGRAMME of international art exhibitions, festivals, screenings and other events on a variety of themes relating to real 21st century early parenthood experiences, featuring autobiographical work by progressive artists of any gender and spanning visual, performance, literary, film & digital art;

– independent RESEARCH PROGRAMME which addresses potential missing links in mainstream studies of pregnancy, birth and new parenthood experiences in partnership with RESEARCH FELLOWS and organisations from all over the world;

– pioneering TEACHING PROGRAMME consisting of study modules and workshops that utilise powerful works of art by its ASSOCIATE ARTISTS to encourage (future) doctors, other medical professionals and new parents to contemplate their role and responsibility in the outcome of pregnancy, birth and new parenthood experiences and the potential intergenerational consequences of their decisions.

In addition, DIEP is building the first INTERNATIONAL NETWORK in the world that brings together ACADEMICS, RESEARCHERS, OBSTETRICIANS, GYNAECOLOGISTS, MIDWIVES, DOULAS, PSYCHOLOGISTS, ARTISTS, JOURNALISTS and any other professionals whose work has a direct impact on new parents or parents-to-be. This GLOBAL NETWORK will make any relevant news, work, research, art and thoughts on 21st century early parenthood experiences accessible to anyone who shares DIEP‘s mission to improve 21st century early parenthood experiences.
