  • Child care available.
  • RSVP is encouraged
  • All Studies Project events are free and open to the public

We will discuss and examine the culture around child-rearing in our field - in what ways do structures and attitudes in the field integrate and invite this choice and in what ways do they, often unconsciously, ignore or discourage this reality? How are artists who are also parents perceived? What are some of the concrete decisions and conditions individuals in the field employ to make it work?

Proposed by Nami Yamamoto and Netta Yerushalmy in conversation with Movement Research.

Moderated by Shannon Hummel. With Yanira Castro, Rebecca Davis, Ursula Eagly, Craig Peterson, Stacy Spence and Donna Uchizono.
