Opening Monday, October 30th, at 5PM
Are you a mother of color who makes things? How do you find the time and space to create? Join us for
Ways We Make – a gathering and celebration of black and brown mothers who want to share their artistry as well as their strategies for how to create and thrive as moms. We invite all mothers to this event series supporting the work and needs of artist mothers of color, their children and their families.
Monday, October 30th, 5:00 -7:30pm – Childcare-Supported Gathering & Potluck*
The first event is a childcare-supported gathering of mothers who make things. As children engage in supervised play and art making, mothers will connect with each other over a shared meal and guided conversation. Together, we will discuss the challenges of making while parenting, share strategies for how to carve out the space and time we need, and question traditional artist spaces. Participants are encouraged to bring a dish to pass for the potluck meal.
Tuesday, November 7th, 5:30 – 7:00pm – Intergenerational Exhibition/ Sharing
At the second event we will celebrate the creative work of mothers of color. Everyone is welcome to join us for this one-night exhibition and sharing: families and extended support networks of friends, fans and supporters. Mothers – and children – are invited to share and discuss their work at this informal, intergenerational event.
