The Mother Load


The Mother Load


The Mother Load is a global network of women who have connected through the simple act of passing a name from one person to another, creating an elaborate community of women who are both artists and mothers.

In 2012, US based artists Lesli Robertson and Natalie Macellaio established The Mother Load, in an effort to encourage dialogue and connection between women who balance artistic careers and motherhood. This project is about recording these connections and finding ways to share, collaborate and support each other and our work.
