The Nelson and District Arts Council and Hidden Creek Art and Ecology Retreat have joined forces again to host the fourth annual Wood Gundy Hidden Creek artist’s residency, located at Grohman Creek, a short boat ride from Nelson.
Their 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, and music composition. Applications are now being accepted from local artists (Nelson, Areas E or F) who are interested in this program.
The residency consists of one week shared residency with food allowance from Aug. 18 to 24 at Hidden Creek Retreat. Boat travel will be provided to and from the retreat centre with one additional round trip for supplies and food if necessary.
Interested artists are encouraged to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please provide an artist statement outlining how the residency would contribute to your professional and personal development (five pages maximum). Submission deadline is Friday, June 7.
