Motherhood is a Joke: Guiding mothers in creative exploration of what makes us laugh, what makes us cry, and how we hold the community together.

Kitchen Theatre Company (KTC) and Mama’s Comfort Camp (MCC) are seeking sponsors to support a new workshop series to take place between October 2019 and March 2020 in which local moms gather to share their experiences of motherhood through storytelling, humor, and (optional) performance. These workshops would allow moms of all kinds, ages, and stages to meet a deep need for self-expression, which is so sorely missing for most mothers, and will foster meaningful one-on-one connections that build a strong and diverse network of support for area moms. The program will culminate in a final showcase in KTC’s performance space.

At a time of political upheaval and environmental peril, many of us recognize that for our world to heal, we need to listen to the mothers and focus attention on all the nurturers in our community.

Motherhood is a Joke is the first program of the Listen to the Mothers Initiative, an open-ended collaboration between multidisciplinary creative forces in our community working together to bring forth a more caring world order by amplifying the voices of those who nurture humanity but are too often taken for granted, unseen and unheard. Sponsors and donors are vital to this program and will be acknowledged in event promotional materials, online, facebook event pages and print materials for the 4 workshops and in the showcase program. In-kind donations welcome.
