It Takes A Village - Models for Mother Artists
Sun, April 23, 2017, 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM BST
Sharon Louden in an interview with Hyperallergic said "It takes a village for an artist to realily sustain their creative practice". This resonates with the perhaps more widely recognized notion that it 'takes a village to raise a child'.
At this symposium we will present, explore and discuss a range of models for sustaining mother-artists and explore how 'the village' can facilitate the role of the woman who seeks to sustain both an art career and children.
We hope that non-mothers, and non-artists, will benefit from exploring these models as well as artist-mothers, and we will draw on models from education, culture and experimental arts practices.
