A self-directed, open-source artist residency to empower and inspire artists who are also mothers.
You don’t have to apply. It doesn't cost anything, it's fully customisable, and you can be in residence for as long as you choose. You don't even have to travel, the residency takes place entirely inside your own home and everyday life. An Artist Residency in Motherhood is the reframing of parenthood as a valuable site for creative practice, rather than an obstruction to be overcome.
On this website you can read more about how the residency began, become an artist-in-residence-in-motherhood, nominate an artist/parent for a unique grant called The Red Thread, or join the mentorship program.
There are currently almost 550 Artists-in-Residence-in Motherhood in
