In our recent survey of Artist Parents, over 60% said that they found galleries and art spaces to be unwelcoming to children, families and parents.

Quotes

"I would definitely not attend some openings with my child as they are at a very unfriendly hour for kids, are crowded and busy and don't provide space for children." 

Survey Respondent

"Most galleries 'feel' unwelcoming if I'm entering with a pram. A pram is not sexy. Some galleries are physically not accessible to me anymore as I can't get a pram in (eg: only stair access)."

Survey Respondent

"My old studio run by a local council kicked me out 6 days after giving birth as I could not meet my attendance quota while pregnant. There was no affordance for mat leave, and was a clear instance of inequity only affecting a mother. Really disappointing."

Survey Respondent

"The culture of quiet contemplation and occasional elitism doesn't lend itself to children's outbursts"
