This pen and wash image was illustrated by Caroline Jariwala. It depicts an expectant mother bending over in the “child’s position”, which is a relaxing yoga position for pregnant women. The sketch was designed for Sampad’s 2001 Ante Natal Project for South Asian women in the Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham. The sessions included music, singing, movement and relaxation to traditional South Asian music.

Series notesMusic plays an important role in Sampad's work. The organisation has initiated and developed a range of participatory community music projects in education and youth settings. It aims to produce and promote new music; commission new music projects; and create links and offer new opportunities to upcoming artists. Through its partnerships with other institutions, Sampad also provides training and professional development for musicians in education and community projects.
Collection notesSampad was founded in 1990, under the directorship of Piali Ray OBE. The arts organisation was established to strengthen the infrastructure of South Asian arts in the West Midlands and Birmingham region. Due to Director Piali Ray's background as a dancer, this south Asian arts development agency has retained its strengths in dance, however its current remit is much wider, covering cross art forms of music, theatre, crafts and literature within education and community environments.
