Feed: Designing public breastfeeding

Elaine Speight

Reader in Curatorial Practice and Place at UCLan

Vicky Carr

Founder Textbook Studio

Curator Elaine Speight and graphic designer Vicky Carr will discuss the role of design in shaping attitudes towards breastfeeding in public. Describing the processes involved in creating a public, multimedia feeding chair (available to experience at Ikon gallery during the festival), as part of their project ‘Feed’, they will explore how breastfeeding debates connect to wider issues of visibility, (dis)comfort and whose bodies have the right to take up space.
