To celebrate and amplify the voices of mother and female artists all around Singapore, we are seeking submissions for Mama on Palette’s upcoming community book, Singapore in the Eyes of Mother Artists (SITE.MA). 


Let your artworks meet others and weave in a unique story: how does motherhood change or reinforce your experience of living in Singapore? How does it affect the art that you make? How does art heal, inspire and empower you in your parenthood journey?


You are welcome to join this one-of-a-kind art project, if you are a mother artist from all walks of life, working with any type of visual art medium, to celebrate motherhood and creativity with us.
