Parents and children can enjoy the new Spring exhibitions of Ree Morton: The Plant That Heals May Also Poison and Project Room: Ann Greene Kelly with the Hey Baby Feminist Parenting Group and the museum’s Learning and Engagement team.
Hey Baby Feminist Parenting Group was started at the Women’s Center for Creative Work in 2016 by Gilda Davidian. As the cornerstone activity of the Hey Baby community, children, babies and their caretakers are invited to gather together for a morning of play and connection with other families every two weeks. This is a space that provides much needed contact and support to counter the often-isolating experience of contemporary parenting. Parents, caretakers, and children can connect with collective wisdom, practical support, and a rich network of families to rely on. Hey Baby has also organized community building, arts, & political education events including the monthly series Parenting as Protest, reading and discussion groups, and a Children’s Contingent for protests including the LA Women’s March. Ongoing parent-led initiatives include a Childcare Co-Op, Toddler Art Classes, Baby Dance Parties, and Feminist Storytime.
