Beyond Juno: The Birth Mother Project — CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

Beyond Juno: The Birth Mother Project
Call for Participants

SEEKING: Birth mothers, first mothers, women who have placed a child for adoption from the New York City region, TO BE INTERVIEWED AND PHOTOGRAPHED for a feminist art/activism project, focusing on how social stereotypes about birth mothers compare with their identities and lived experiences.
PARTICIPATION REQUIRES: A physical meeting with me (roughly an hour and a half long), where I will conduct an informal interview regarding the participant’s life and experiences with adoption, as well as capture some portrait photographs. The final product will be a compilation of transcripted interviews and portraits. The aim of the project is to give voice to birth mothers and to encourage their participation in adoption narratives, discourse, policy.
PLEASE NOTE: It is certainly possible for a participant to remain anonymous; a woman’s name can be changed and her face obscured if she prefers.
All prospective participants should CONTACT BirthMomProject@gmail.com. You can also contact me there if you have any questions about the project.
Please forward widely. Thank you!
