Residency at The Narrows

Open year round.

The Narrows Artist residency gives creative individuals time and space away from their usual regular routine of life for reflection, research or production. The West Kootenay and Nelson, BC is home to outstanding artists in many disciplines. We believe taking consistent time and space to be creative is personally and professionally transformative. You must be willing to work in a semi isolated setting. Travel is by boat and you walk to the retreat. Supplies/equipment can be arranged to be transported in for you. 




The Residence includes shared living room, kitchen, bedrooms, and washroom. Residents are encouraged to bring items to make the living space accommodate their personal needs (pack lightly as travel is by boat).

The Studio is furnished with basic equipment; however, residents must bring any necessary specific equipment and supplies.

The Yurt is equipped with beds, lighting, and writing table. Cooking facilities and washrooms are in main residence.
