Wombenhood is an emerging dialogical space that explores topics linked to menstrual cycles, periods, societal taboos and other issues related through collaborative and participatory projects.


Aims at unveiling and unpicking menstruality with the desire to bring societal change through conversations, human interactions and art-making processes in safe spaces open to all.

Wombenhood's concept is co-founded by Valeria Medici and Rhianne Burgess.
