Women’s Studio Workshop > Parent Residency Grant (USA)

The Parent Grant is a four-week residency for an artist with at least one dependent child under the age of 18. It takes place at the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, New York, and is open to artists interested in working in any of the Studio’s disciplines: intaglio, letterpress, papermaking, screenprinting, photography, or ceramics.

This grant includes a $1450 childcare stipend, up to $250 for travel costs, free onsite housing, and 24/7 studio access. WSW can also provide technical advice and production assistance.

The $1450 childcare stipend can be used at the artist’s discretion, though a childcare plan must be submitted with the application. Possible childcare scenarios include:

  • Bringing a caregiver or co-parent (must be 18+) to stay at WSW for the residency period.

  • Finding a childcare facility near WSW.

  • Locating individuals near WSW who can provide childcare.

  • Paying for childcare at your family’s home base.

  • If you plan to bring your child/children and are in need of childcare, WSW recommends using care.com to locate area providers. WSW cannot assist applicants in finding childcare options.

If your child/children are coming with you, WSW can provide a two-bedroom apartment (with one single bed, one double, and one single pull-out couch) that has a bathroom and an open kitchen/living area. The maximum occupancy is four. Please note that, for safety reasons and to maintain a focused working environment, children cannot be in the studios where artists are working.

The residency will last four weeks and take place within the period September 2020 – June 2021. Applications from international artists are welcomed. 

Deadline: 15 January 2020
