By the WSW (Women’s Studio Workshop), the Parent’ Residency Grant is a residency of four weeks for an artist “who has at least one dependent child under the age of 18”. The awarded artists may choose to work in any of WSW’s four studio disciplines: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics. The grant includes a $1450 stipend for childcare, as much as $250 for travel expenses, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access.

The artist is allowed to use the childcare stipend at they want to, but a childcare plan must be submitted with the application.

The deadline to apply is the 15th of January, 2020. The residency will take place between September and June, this year and the next.

Who is Eligible to Apply:

  • Any artist who has at least one child who is dependent on them; the dependent child must be below 18 years of age.

How to Apply:

  • Submit a current resume;
