Retreat into Solidarity

Kaylan Buteyn is an artist and mother who has started a movement among other artist mothers. She launched the Artist/Mother Podcast in early 2019 and immediately saw thousands of mothers flocking to the community by listening and posting their work on the podcast’s instagram page @artistmotherpodcast. In this episode she talks about how early motherhood is so different from being a mother of three. Feelings of isolation and loneliness, both as a mother and as a professional, drove her to launch the Artist / Mother Podcast, which set the stage for organizing a multitude of other groups like a critique group and book club.

In this episode I visited her first retreat, and interviewed women who attended. We get a sense of what it means to be among like minded mothers in this nurturing professional environment. And we hear a bit about what this journey has meant for Kaylan.
