The Mother Lode Project

Mother lode: a principal vein or zone of gold or silver ore, or colloquially the real/imaginary origin of something valuable or in great abundance. The aim of this project, an initiative developed by Xaverine Bates, is to extract the gold from challenging experiences of motherhood, by giving opportunities for artists who are mothers to work with those who may be experiencing mental health difficulties as a result of motherhood. HOT’s Zelly Restorick speaks to Xaverine, herself a mother, an artist and a person with lived experience of mental distress.
