Jason Oakley

The Mothership Project would like to extend our  deepest sympathies to Jason Oakley’s family and friends on his recent death. He had a brave four year battle with cancer and through this period continued to work in VAI  supporting and advocating for artists. He was a friend, parent, supporter and fellow feminist and through his research and work helped to make visible and connect  The Mothership Project and other artist parenting initiatives. We will miss him terribly

Here is his article from 2013 in the VAI Even in Sweden “In this regard, the Mothership Project was recognised as a valuable tactical and strategic resource in itself, bolstering the reputational ‘capital’ of art-worker mothers and providing an alternative networking space.” Rest in a beautiful and great Peace Jason.  Love from all in The Mothership Project.
