Support Extended Practice

Support Extended Practice

As we continue to navigate this complex and uncertain time as artists and parents, we have been finding ourselves craving connection and community. As a result we are putting together a new kind of virtual event series aimed at connecting our community of artist mothers.

We’re putting together a new kind of virtual event series aimed at connecting our community of artist mothers, supporting mental health, professional development, and a stronger sense of community and network.

We are working with Art Therapist Lucy Scott on multiple sessions where participants will have the chance to reflect on their needs, identify supports, and explore the connections between play, nurture, creativity and community. We are also excited to be working with Artist, Poet and Organizer A.Marinez on a series of meetups, focusing on connecting and sharing experiences and resources. We will follow these sessions up with a mini series of professional practice conversations with artist mothers with robust careers - giving participants facetime with the artist and the chance to ask pointed questions about balancing care-taking and building a career as an artist.

We are just two artists trying to make space for artist mothers. We are committed to paying our artists, but we need your help! Please consider pitching in a little more - or even sponsoring an event if you are able - to allow us to offer this programming for free to those that need it. Please help us support artist mothers today!
