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.
