Creative Push is a multimedia visual art and oral history project that focuses on the most formative of human experiences: birth. Personal, intimate storytelling is the central method by which birth stories are usually communicated, and though those stories rarely take concrete form, they are often very visual. Creative Push establishes a forum through which birth narratives can be shared more widely, and it works to develop such stories’ nascent visuality, collecting audio recordings in which women describe their experiences of labor and delivery, and making them available to visual artists. Presented alongside the artworks they inspire, the audio recordings spur much-needed conversations around pregnancy and birth and create meaningful dialogues between storytelling and visual art. Creative Push is a means to collect, transform, display, and circulate birth stories and artworks. Visit Creative Push website
