October 28, 2010: Greetings From Motherland Seminar, Toronto, ON
I interned a few years ago with Jumblies Theatre, a community arts organization in Toronto, and I gave the first Jumblies Studio seminar of the year in late October.  It was wonderful presenting the work to many of my colleagues in the community art world and others and we had a great discussion afterwards about motherhood, community, and artmaking.

July 31, 2010: Good Eater Opening, Madison, WI
We celebrated the opening of Good Eater, the installation about food and motherhood, in the Eagle Heights Community Gardens after we finished our five-week workshop in Eagle Heights.  We were joined by many gardeners and other members of the community as we ate, drank, and hung out in the arbor.

June 14 – 15, 2010: Wisconsin Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Conference, Lake Geneva, WI
Soon after first showing “Welcome to Motherland”, I was invited to share the work at this yearly conference for hundreds of professionals who specialize in infant and early childhood mental health.  We were also there to help celebrate the launch of The University of Wisconsin Infant, Early Childhood, and Family Mental Health Certificate Program.  It was a great opportunity to show the work and collect postcards from an audience that spends a lot of time thinking about and working on issues around support for new parents.

May 23, 2010: Welcome to Motherland, Madison, WI
The inaugural exhibition of Greetings From Motherland, “Welcome to Motherland” was the culmination of all of the hard work of the women in the winter 2010 workshop in Madison, WI.  In a gorgeous space at the Goodman Community Center in Madison, we welcomed over 200 people to peek, touch, listen, gaze, write, and join us in celebrating the first public showing of work from the project.
