Mother of All Residencies
The Society of Undervalued Artistic Pursuits is calling for a working mother to take part in an extended part-time residency that provides workspace, tools, resources and ongoing opportunities for the creative pursuits of the resident's choosing.
As part of this residency, the Society will install a cottage art studio in a discreet corner of the resident's backyard. The cottage will come fully furnished with art supplies, a library of inspirational literature, a loft bed, meditation nook and exterior garden.
The Society will also provide unlimited child care at the resident's behest. This child care will be led by a small team of experts trained in leading mental, physical and social enrichments. Enrichment activities will take place within full view of the cottage art studio, weather permitting. Experts will be rotated to ensure that at no time do children develop undue preferences for the child care providers over the resident.
In addition, the residency includes creative mentors from all walks of life, who will make themselves available to the resident for joint art projects, knowledge sharing and (in the likely case that the mentor is also a mother) play dates.
In exchange for this residency, the recipient agrees to honor her creative instincts, follow her curiosity and never undervalue her worth as an artist or a human being.
