Birthing a Better Future, by Zero2Expo, is a thought-provoking art and science exhibition designed to raise awareness about the first 1001 critical days from conception to age two of a child’s life.
Science proves beyond doubt how important the 1001 days are for optimum brain development, an outcome which is most readily achieved through exposure to healthy environments and good relationships. These positive early connections last a lifetime, and are vital in creating successful, happy and healthy adults.
Birthing a Better Future is the culmination of working with 32 artists and 28 scientists and hours of research to produce a portable exhibition with an empowering message. The exhibition invites you to consider new ways of thinking about pregnancy, birth and parenting. All text is underpinned by expert opinions and scientific research and is accompanied by thought-provoking art.
