Nest. Maternar en Residencia / Resistencia is an artistic residency designed explicitly for artists who are also mothers alongside their children. Its primary goal is to provide a platform conspicuously absent from existing offerings, fostering solidarity among artists who often end up isolated and alienated from existing artistic structures due to having a family.

Through an open call, four mother artists’ proposals will be selected for the residency, allowing them to develop new works or advance existing projects, ideally involving themes of motherhood and/or their children. The focus here is on creating art that requires motherhood, not despite it.
Wohnen, Kunst Ateliers, Projekträume
We have three dorm-style rooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, and shared spaces such as a living area, courtyard, garden, etc. All the spaces are to be shared with the other artists.
You are also welcome to bring your tent or caravan.
The Residency has ateliers and exhibition spaces.
Erreichbarkeit per Auto, Zug und Fahrrad. Anbindung an die A9 und an den Bahnhof in Coswig (Anhalt). Werben liegt an der an der Route des Elberadweges.
Interested artists will submit a proposal for an artistic project to be developed during the residency and an activity involving the other mothers and children (such as an open class, a dance session, a reading, an outdoor movement activity, a cooking class, etc.). As a result of the residency, a community open day will be held to showcase the participants’ results or processes.
