ARTIST FAMILY RESIDENCY
18-24 July 2022
Nectar presents its first art residency program that welcomes and supports artists with families.
At Nectar we recognize the limited accessibility to residencies as a parent. The length of time, traveling and leaving behind your family can make attending a challenge. We recognize many artists discover they must drop or drastically curtail their creative practice while having children, leaving a cultural gap.
The Artist Family Residency makes it possible for artists to dedicate time to their work at this key stage in their lives by offering all of the support necessary to do and by assisting them to have productive and rewarding careers as they rear their families.
To support both the creative and parental needs of its residents, the program offers living and studio space, as well as accommodation, meals and creative workshops for the children (and adults for who want to join as well).
We are happy to have the children pursue their own creativity as part of the residency and will prepare for them a series of workshops around art, nature and creativity leaded by educators and artists, allowing artists-parents to focus fully on their work.
Nectar first Artist Family Residency has the aim to benefit the families and artist-parents in finding new ways to integrate family and artistic lives while integrating the work of family life with a sense of creative play.
The residency welcomes children from 2 up to 12 years old and from one up to four families.
The artist have the choice to bring their spouse/partner, either he/she is an artist or not.
