Funded by the National lottery Emerging Futures Fund, ‘4MNet Re-imagining the Future’ was a 6-month creative project that started in November 2020. Mentor Mothers were trained to use photography and creative writing to document and share our visions for better futures post-lockdown where all elements we need to be happy, healthy and safe are present: – where our sexual and reproductive health and rights are ensured, there is no HIV stigma, discrimination, poverty, violence against women and girls; and where there is gender equality, racial and social justice, and we are meaningfully engaged in decisions on the issues affecting us.
Through this project, we used virtual peer sessions to reflect, analyse and share our ideas, photos and writing. Using creativity, we document intersections that exist for us, envision holistic policy, practice, what we value most and show the contributions we make to society.
We held a Virtual Exhibition Event on Friday, April 30th 2021
Our main aim is to share with key organisations and decision makers who have power to change policy and practice to improve our quality of life as women living with HIV.
