how to be an artist and a parent?


Being a parent is pretty challenging. And raising a kid while trying to be an artist/writer/you-name-it can

feel pretty overwhelming– especially when you throw in Boston’s insanely high cost of living.

But we’re creative people. Maybe if we get together and talk and listen, we can find ways to support

each other. Maybe we can focus some of our creative energy on the problems that all parents face, and

find some solutions. Maybe we can make it easier for ourselves in the process, and for other

artist/parents down the road.

“How to be an artist and a parent?” is a series of discussion events and an online forum. It’s set up by

Greg Cook and Tim Devin, but is inspired by some initiatives in other cities. Things like Cultural

Reproducers in Chicago, and Invisible Spaces of Parenthood in London.
