Upcoming Activities
Throughout May, June and July, Listen Love Learn will be collaborating with The Birth Research Project from Derby University.   This exciting research project uses creative interventions to explore birth experiences.  Over a 12 week period, the project intends to use participatory arts and visual methods to explore childbirth.  
All the sessions will run 12-3pm, the second and third Tuesday of the month will start with Baby Time, 12-1pm and we will still have messy/explorative play during these sessions too.  The sessions will be relaxed and informal, there will be no pressure to share information and dads are still most welcome!  
A fantastic opportunity to join discussions and be part of an exhibition.
For more information regarding weekly sessions please email or visit The Birth Project website for more information regarding the project.
Join Listen Love Learn for a Family Friendly Gallery Launch on Saturday 27th June.
