What we do

Birthing a Better Future Art & Science Exhibition by Zero2 Expo

The Birthing a Better Future Exhibition is a UK touring art and science exhibition to raise awareness about the crucial time from conception, birth and the first 1001 days in the healthy development of children. We want to support you to give your child the best possible start in life.

Our first exhibition launched in the UK Houses of Parliament in 2016 and the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford in 2017 and the evaluation of this exhibition has been published in The Lancet Journal in November 2018. The exhibition was originally inspired by the ‘1001 Critical Days Manifesto’, an ongoing cross-party initiative launched in Parliament in 2013 which proposes important ways to improve the lives of babies.

Our beautifully designed ‘pop-up’ exhibition covers key topics for contemplation and invites you to consider new ways of thinking about pregnancy, birth and parenting. There are 18 stunning double sided banners that express “Positive Intentions”, a message from the baby, stimulating ideas relating to key topics, quotes and links to full abstracts and artists process. All text is underpinned by expert opinions and scientific research and is accompanied by moving, thought-provoking art. Our goal is to empower and inspire you by starting the conversation.

Science proves beyond doubt how important this time is for optimum brain development, an outcome which is most readily achieved through exposure to healthy environments and good relationships. These positive early connections last a lifetime, and are vital in creating successful, happy and healthy adults.
