We are thrilled to announce that the Nelson and District Arts Council (NDAD) and Hidden Creek Art & Ecology centre have created an exciting new residency program and are looking for local artists to apply. NDAC and Hidden Creek have joined forces to create an Artist’s Residency, located at Grohman creek, a short boat ride from the City of 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 including music composition. NDAC is now accepting applications from local artists who are interested in this program.
The residency consists of one week shared residency with food allowance from August 21st to August 27th at Hidden Creek Art & Ecology Centre. Boat travel will be provided to and from the retreat centre with one additional round trip for supplies and food if necessary.
Artists who are interested in applying for the retreat are encouraged to e-mail a brief bio (2 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. In lieu of digital bodies of work, Artists also may also mail a CD to NDAC (Box 422 Nelson BC, V1L 5R2). Also, please provide an Artist Statement outlining how the Residency would contribute to your professional and personal development (5 pages maximum).
