The Nelson and District Arts Council and The Narrows Art Retreat (formerly Hidden Creek) have joined forces again to host the fifth annual Wood Gundy/The Narrows Artist Residency, located at Grohman Creek, a short boat ride from Nelson.
Our collective goal is to provide artists with a retreat-style setting in order to work on or develop their art in the areas of visual art, creative writing, or music composition. We are now accepting applications from local artists (Nelson or Areas E or F) who are interested in this program.
The residency consists of a one-week shared residency with food allowance during the summer of 2021 at the retreat. Boat travel will be provided to and from the retreat centre with one additional round trip for supplies and food if necessary.
Artists should email a brief bio (two pages maximum) along with images of recent work if a visual artist, samples of written work, or a link to a YouTube video for musical work, to email@example.com. Also, please provide an artist statement outlining how the residency would contribute to your professional and personal development (five pages maximum). The submission deadline is Friday, March 5.
