Are you a parent, and an artist/musician/writer/you-name-it?
If so, we hope you’ll join the conversation. “How To Be An Artist And A Parent” is a discussion series, and an online forum for Boston-area creative folks with kids.
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.
