Can an artist be on maternity leave?

Can a musician still establish herself during the toddler years?

How do we create a new platform for creators/makers who are mothers?

Our vision is to work towards offer practical solutions, such as residences in the hometown of artists,to be part of a context via online meetings that we call 'critique groups' to participate in discussions, to present oneself and get intellectual stimulation and feedback on projects and ideas



As a member of Mothers in Residence you enable a network that supports and promotes artists, creators, musicians and cultural workers who are mothers to activate their artistic practice after and during motherhood.

And you contribute to an equality issue for cultural workers and help us raise issues that no one seems to have asked so far, and at the same time find practical solutions to these.

Thank you for supporting us.

These crit-groups can be theme or project based, all decided by our members.

You get access to a shared studio with another resident artist and an introduction to an approved workshop.

You also get access to workshops according to an agreement with KKV with a cost of 200sek / day depending that you are approved according to their criteria.

*Through the residence membership, it is also possible to use KKV Gothenburg's workshops through our organisational membership. Here's the link to the application for access.

Access to the workshops requires that you are approved by those responsible for that workshop, and the knowledge requirements vary between the workshops; If you want to know more, contact the respective workshop manager.
