Applications now being accepted for Wood Gundy Hidden Creek Artist’s Residency

NDAC and Hidden Creek Art and Ecology Retreat have joined forces again to host the fourth annual Wood Gundy Hidden Creek 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," the media release said. "We are now accepting applications from local artists (Nelson, Areas E or F) who are interested in this program."

The residency consists of one-week shared residency with food allowance from August 18th-24th, 2019 at Hidden Creek Retreat. 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 (two 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 info@ndac.ca.

Also, please provide an Artist Statement outlining how the Residency would contribute to your professional and personal development (five pages maximum).

Submission deadline is Friday, June 7th , 2019.
