A Conversation for Parents & Carers Working in the Arts during the pandemic

Online conversation hosted by Improbable, in partnership with Mothers Who Make and PiPA.

A chance to come together, to share stories of the good, the bad, the ugly and the downright maddening times you have been through. Come and grieve the projects that did not happen, laugh at the crazy schooling-at-home days that did, and feel less alone.

Let’s see if we can support each other in recovering our practice, our spirits, our hope, and tease out any precious silver linings from this stormy and challenging year.  

Children welcome too – inside you, beside you, or ‘zoom bombing’ your screen.


This event will be facilitated using QiqoChat and Zoom. You will receive confirmation of your booking when purchasing your ticket and your link to join via email ahead of the event.


Devoted & Disgruntled is organised using a process called Open Space Technology, or Open Space. We will fully explain everything you need to know at the beginning of the session, including a briefing on all of the tech that we’ll be using.

You can also read a bit more about the principles of Open Space here on the D&D website (although bear in mind that some of the details will be different in a virtual space!)


This event takes place online.

If you’ve booked a ticket, you’ll receive an email in advance with helpful information. Please include details of any access needs at checkout and we will be able to facilitate these on request with Improbable who will be running the event.

We try our hardest to make sure D&D is accessible for Deaf, disabled, blind, partially-sighted, and neurodivergent participants. We will be providing a range of online access technologies, including BSL interpreters and live captioning.

If you have any further questions, please get in touch with johanna@improbable.co.uk.


  • This will be an online discussion around childcare and the effects of Covid-19.

This discussion will be Relaxed. We invite you to make yourself comfortable and move around if you need to. You can adjust the brightness and volume of your device at any time.

If you need to take a break, we recommend moving away from your device to do so. If you decide to turn off the discussion, we will be able to pass on the details of an admin who will be able to readmit you when you would like to re-join.
