We're so excited to announce a call for submissions for an ongoing art showcase at the MyMama Hub in Naxxar.

Since we opened our doors just over a year ago, the hub has been serving as a welcoming home for our team and the families we support. With the passing of time, we've come to realise just how much our clients leave their mark on us and on each other - through different interactions and and shared experiences. From this observation, The Parenthood Collective project was born...

LEARN MORE

We'd love for the MyMama Hub to be a space where YOU can speak your truths and share your own pregnancy and parenthood stories through ART.

We are seeking illustrations, drawings and paintings that explore the themes of parenthood, pregnancy and family life. We welcome submissions from artists of ALL backgrounds, experiences and styles.

Illustrator Moira Scicluna Zahra will be assessing the submissions - selected artworks will be displayed at the MyMama Hub and will be available for sale. This is a fantastic opportunity for experienced as well as up and coming illustrators and artists to showcase their work and to potentially sell their pieces.
