The Beyond The Lens film project is our final instalment of the Black and Birthing in Birmingham programme. 

We are pleased to be working with Sankofa Healing Creative Arts CIC and Just Nevaeh Film and Photography, who will be helping us to capture your birth story whilst bringing healing and restoration to your perinatal experience.

Our birth stories are so important yet we don't often get a chance to talk about our pregnancy or the birth itself, whether it was amazing and transformational or whether it was a real challenge and didn't go the way we wanted it to.


Here at MEA we are creating spaces for Black women to talk about their perinatal experiences safely and free of judgement. 

Beyond The Lens is a 2-fold film project consisting of a healing birth story workshop with Sankofa Healing Arts CIC and then the filming of parts of your birth story that includes a photoshoot with Just Nevaeh.

The workshop and photoshoot costs £47 with a £25 deposit to hold your space.

If you are interested in telling your story to camera and want to be a part of creating history on film, please click here or the link above and fill in our expression of interest form.

Workshop: Wednesday 10th November 10am - 3pm (Zoom)

Film & Photoshoot: Sunday 21st November (Venue TBC)

Deadline for your expression of interest is Friday 5th November at 12noon.
