AIGA Women Lead is pleased to present Wholly Mother, an event series bringing together moms and mom-identifying folks from all different stages of motherhood to connect, learn, and celebrate in a supportive and safe environment.
The Wholly Mother series will continue into 2019 on International Women's Day, inviting you to Vent & Vector (Balance for Better) with us. Sponsored by Station Four, this is a vent session with a purpose where we'll spend time reflecting on the ways the demands of motherhood have us bend and not break, not unlike the vectors many of us work with daily.
Bring your favorite drawing tools and enjoy a safe space to vent your frustrations, share your wins, and explore art as therapy. We will kick off the evening's catharsis with moderator Melissa Bird to get us ready to let it all out. And our panel of mothers will offer wisdom, laughter, and freedom to be honest with yourself. Be ready to draw along the way as you are prompted to use your doodles as a healthy expression through art. Light snacks and beverages will be provided along with plenty of drawing room.
