Conversations with Teen Mums

with Teen Mums

Conversations with Teen Mums is a web-based interactive documentary about millennial and generation Z young mums. Featuring a combination of photographic portraits, personal quotes, written interviews and films, Conversations offers audiences a unique window into the minds of NZ young mums who are coming-of-age as their children grow.

The website captures its subjects’ experiences in their own words, providing a voice to a group of NZ women whose perspectives often go unheard. Their stories challenge the stereotypes of teen mums by deepening the audience’s understanding of their daily realities – hopes, dreams, love, relationships, struggles, expectations, cultural influences, the importance of family, and the juggle of life, work and motherhood.
