Can an artist be on maternity leave?

Can a local artist in residence facilitate re-establishment during the toddler years or during/after demanding family relationships?

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.
