Art exhibition on amulets and child loss

During the Small Blessings project we received a research visit from artist Marie Brett, who was in the development stage of a project looking at the sensitive subject of amulets as signifiers of pregnancy and infant loss. With support from Arts Council the artist worked with bereaved parents and three national hospitals in Ireland.

Marie also entered our amulet photo competition with this entry:

Now Marie's exhibition is ready. 'Amanesis' will be showing at the Waterford Central Library in Ireland until May 3rd.

Even after the official end of the Small Blessings amulet project, it's great to learn of these ripple effects and additional outcomes that it contributed to. It was a pleasure to meet Marie and we wish her every success with her exhibition and future projects.
