This summer, Locust Projects launched a series called Care, offering space and resources to artists who work at the intersection of self-, interpersonal, and community care. Some of these artists are mothers, with parenting experiences that inform their creative practices. Arsimmer McCoy is a collaborative storyteller with deep roots in her Miami Gardens (formerly Carol City) community. Loni Johnson creates healing spaces for Black women, investigating how she claims space and how our ancestral memory informs the ways we move through space. And Coralina Rodriguez Meyer translates structural violence into heirlooms to restore civic agency.
In Mother Artist, these women will discuss their art practices, their commitments to caregiving, and how integrating care into cultural work can lead us all towards a more nourishing, tender, and sustainable future. The artists will engage session participants through passionate and compassionate discussion, experience-based skill sharing, and artist-created participatory activities.
This session is open to all. Artist parents are welcomed and encouraged to attend with their children.
