The Mother Arts Festival is coming to Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley, in Northampton, MA, on October 28th, 29th, & 30th. This is the event you have been waiting for. These mothers are your friends, family, and colleagues, and not only do they kick ass at mothering, being there for you,  and everything else, but they are artists to boot. Come celebrate them with three days of visual arts, theatre, dance, and music.

Mothers are the backbone of our society but often they need to put their creative endeavors aside. Mothers who are career artists need to be celebrated. With MICA, it’s their time to shine. Mothers Institute for Collaboration and Art spotlights Artist Mothers with a biannual visual and performing arts multi-artistic festival. MICA will showcase these mothers’ work through its website and social media. As MICA’s community grows, and support for artist mothers shifts to meet their needs MICA will offer workshops, and help with childcare needs.

Let's Talk About It.

Being a mother brings great joys and great challenges. So, how does a mom who has to drop everything at any given moment make it in the arts? Women are underrepresented in art as it is.

We understand the many obstacles that get in the way for artistic mothers. She can’t just up and move. She has to make it where she’s rooted.


Dreams Really Do Come True

Imagine an evening where cocktails and hor- d’oeurves are paired with fine art and live acoustic music in the lobby while you wait for the main stage performance inside.
