Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley in Northampton, MA.

Friday, October 28, Saturday, October 29, and Sunday, October 30, 2022.

You heard it, Mommas! MICA is throwing its first multi-artistic festival for you, Mother, who works so hard. We value your talents and efforts and we want to offer you a prime space in downtown Northampton, MA. Do you know about Northampton Center for the Arts at 33 Hawley in Northampton, MA?

Have you seen the space at 33 Hawley? We are thrilled that performances and gallery spaces are opening again.

This is your moment to shine.

The details are still in the making but in the meantime, we are looking for submissions. Please fill out the interactive form below to let us know about you as an artist. Fill out what you know and write ‘unknown’ for what you don’t know. Please note that not everyone in your group needs to be a mother, we just want to make sure a major collaborator is a mother artist.

What is in it for you?

Our curated festival offers prime exposure at Northampton Center for the Arts. The event will be marketed and advertised, and your art will get exposure at the event, on the website, and through social media. This festival is made possible by the Helen Gurley Brown Foundation’s Empowering Innovation Magic Grants. Helen Gurley Brown was all about empowering women.

Artist moms come from every background.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are integral to MICA’s culture. Our events and biannual festivals should cover the many voices of mothers throughout our world.

Spread the word!

Do you know of any other mother artists who might want to participate? Spread the word and share the wealth! MICA is here to support the arts and spotlight mother artists. We’re going to have a kicking event with an opening party, so let your peeps know.
