Connecting with artists / curators addressing women's reproductive powers

Dear all – as our time together is quickly approaching and will be quite brief, I wanted to connect ahead of time with anyone who is working as an artist or curator with / in / around the topic of women’s reproductive health. I am currently collaborating on a project called How to Perform an Abortion which explores systems for self-managed women’s healthcare. Does anyone’s work align with this project, which examines both “medical” and “herbal” approaches to managing fertility?

I will also be traveling in the UK (Oct. 22 - 25) and the Netherlands (Oct. 25 - 29) so if anyone has any recommendations for people I should reach out to who are doing similar / mission-aligned work, please let me know!

If you are travelling to the Netherlands it could be maybe nice for you to get in touch with this organisation https://www.womenonwaves.org/en/page/2928/contact
They work on access to safe abortion through multiple ways of empowerment (drones, ship campaigns, etc)
They also realised an interesting documentary few years ago http://vesselthefilm.com
