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 and accessible exhibitions. Additionally we take special note of the mental health and social needs of mothers by providing community-building opportunities and mental health workshops. This project elevates artist mothers, and provides a platform for them to assert themselves and their experiences as vital to their local artistic communities and beyond. 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.
Currently Sara and Angela are in transitional phases in their lives and thus so is EP. We are working on visioning the next phases of EP. Look out for more events and news in the new year.
