Extended Practice (EP) is an artist-led collaborative project by Sara Holwerda and Angela Lopez created to support and make visible the work and needs of artist mothers. EP celebrates and supports artist mothers by creating childcare-supported professional practice workshops, accessible exhibitions and community-building opportunities. This project elevates artist mothers, and provides a platform for them to assert themselves and their experiences as vital to art production and valuable to the art world. This project models a set of best practices in an effort to encourage artist parents and arts organizations to do more to address the practical and professional realities of parenting in the art world.
