Convening: Mothering + Creativity

Convening: Mothering + Creativity

May 25, 2024
11:00 AM - 2:00PM

Mothering + Creativity is a convening that explores how practices of art making and caregiving overlap as creative processes. This two-part program takes an expansive view of the act of mothering and centers the perspective of femme-identified caretakers. 

The convening will begin with a panel conversation between artists Liz Cohen, Amber Doe, Sara Hubbs, Anh-Thuy Nguyen, and Fay Ray, moderated by Natalie Brewster Nguyen and others who will present their art practices and share personal experiences and strategies for balancing and reconciling the dual roles of artist and caregiver. The second part of the day includes lunch and small breakout groups for participants to discuss topics relevant to sustaining a creative practice while caring for life.

Coffee, lunch, and simultaneous arts education programs for youth ages 5-12 are provided by MOCA at no cost to participants.
