Expecting Something is a creative programme for young parents and their babies. Up to this point, weekly artist-led creative sessions have been held for both ante-natal and post-natal clients and their babies at Whale Arts Centre, funded by the Edinburgh and Lothians Health Foundation.
The Expecting Something 30-week pilot has been tailored to the interests and needs of this specific group of young people, while also focusing on introducing them to activities and experiences that they may not normally have been exposed to. So far, the group have participated in a variety of different activities including photography sessions, circus skills, visual arts, music, felting and tie dying. The activities are chosen by the participants so vary greatly from week to week.
