UPDATE MAY 31:
In light of current unrest, we will postpone our event – MOTHERLOAD – Live Panel Discussion. With a heavy heart, in deference and solidarity with the peaceful protestors responding to recent national events that weigh heavy on us all we will postpone this evenings live panel. It feels as though it would be really wrong to try and activate and enjoy a great conversation about bikes, equity and MOTHERLOAD with our communities in such a state of unrest and suffering.

THE STRUGGLE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE, MOTHERLOAD is a crowd-sourced documentary about a new mother’s quest to understand our current cultural shift toward isolation and disconnection, what this could mean for the future of the planet, and how life on a cargo bike could be the antidote. As filmmaker Liz Canning explores the burgeoning global movement to replace cars with purpose-built bikes, she learns about the bicycle’s history and potential future as the ultimate “social revolutionizer.” Her experiences as a cyclist, as a mother, and in discovering the cargo bike world, make it clear to Liz that sustainability is not necessarily about compromise and sacrifice and there are few things more empowering, in an age of consumption, than the ability to create everything from what seems to be nothing.
