Parenting in the Arts Foundation is a new branch of The Artist and the Others, focused on parenting in the arts.
From our own experience, we know the cultural field is not (yet) the most welcoming for those who have children. Attempting to combine work in the arts, especially for artists, with the responsibilities and rhythms of parenthood frequently pushes parents to abandon the artistic and cultural field, choosing one over the other.
We want to change this.
Could their be an (art) world, where equal opportunities are provided to artist-parents, allowing them to keep developing their own careers in the arts?
Artist Residency for Artist-Parents
We are happy to announce that we are currently developing a PART-TIME 3-month Artist Residency tailored for Artist-Parents. Running twice a year, and combined with a parallel mentoring program and the opportunity to exhibit their work in Maastricht at the end of the residency, this project aims to provide a flexible, adaptable and inclusive model for artist residencies.
This project was inspired by the work of Hettie Judah, more specifically her book ‘How not to exclude artist mother and other parents’
It is time to create inclusive and accessible practices in the arts, promoting a diversity of voices and equal opportunities for Artist-Parents.
The website in currently under construction, and will be ready within the next months under parentinginthearts.theartistandtheothers.nl
Let’s create a positive change together. We Care!
