The Culture Mom appeals to urban moms not ready to trade in sushi for Happy Meals. The Culture Mom is a gallant, worldly irreverent, urban explorer with broad cultural interests. We’re passionate about travel, film, TV, reading, music, art and new experiences, both for us and our children.
The Culture Mom’s mission is to enliven moms and cultivate kids by showing how accessible and fun cultural and travel experiences, in New York City and beyond, can be in everyday life. We don’t view children as constraints to our lives, but show it is vital for moms to maintain and share their passions with their children for real quality time.
