For a year beginning in 2020, BALTIC brought together a group of twenty babies - all born at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic – and their caregivers to connect and broaden their social experiences.

Through contemporary art, the year-long project offered the babies and caregivers a chance to create, connect and play in a way that bridged the social gap caused by a life spent mostly in lockdown.

We are sharing the project in a series of short interviews with the parents and caregivers involved. In this video we meet Emma and JJ, and learn how the 20 Babies project made a difference in their lives.

The 20 Babies project was made possible by our sponsors Mayborn, owners of the Tommee Tippee baby accessories brand.
