Listen To Your Mother, this amazing movement that has been “giving motherhood a microphone” since that very first show in Madison, Wisconsin back in 2010, is taking its final bow during the 2017 season (Raleigh-Durham’s fifth!). Raleigh-Durham is thrilled to be among 33 cities bringing you amazing, final shows in Spring 2017. You can read the official announcement here.
In the coming months you’ll be learning more about how you can get involved. Marty and I will be accepting written submissions for our 2017 show in the second half of January 2017, and we’ll also be letting you know how to buy tickets to celebrate in person with us as soon as we have those details solidified. As always, a percentage of those ticket proceeds will benefit a local charity, to be finalized soon.
In the meantime, please subscribe to our United States/Canada newsletter and follow us on social media (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!). If you have questions, you can email us at email@example.com
Did you miss our Mother’s Day show at Meredith College? Now you can watch our stories on YouTube!
This year, LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER gave motherhood a microphone in 41 cities — over 500 stories told, with thousands of live-listeners in audiences across the U.S. and Canada.
Here in Raleigh-Durham, hundreds of folks gathered at Jones Auditorium at Meredith College to listen to a diverse group of North Carolinians sharing their humorous, moving, and profound words. You can watch the 2016 Raleigh-Durham show by clicking this playlist.
With heartfelt thanks and enormous gratitude to our 2016 cast and production team, and to our North American sponsors SheKnows #BlogHer16, Luvs and local sponsors Davis Family Chiropractic, Dr. Ashley Lloyd, DDS, Lularoe Susan Boylston, Danielle Gardner Stella & Dot, Myriad Media and Jess Rotenberg Photography.
We also invite you to experience voices from our shows all across North America featuring powerful true stories that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.
