SCHOLARSHIPS

CREATING OPPORTUNITIES TO THRIVE

Our goal is to make transformational residency experiences accessible to as many people as possible, regardless of color, gender, class or creed. For increased financial accessibility, we have several options including early bird rates, scholarships, & worktrade.

1. MOMENTOM SCHOLARSHIPS

Momentom recognizes the importance of Solidarity and Allyship work. Having scholarships available is just one of the many ways we continue to open our residency for creators from all walks of life. Our desire is for these scholarships to allow artists with financial restrictions and great ideas to have the opportunity to take part in a residency that will propel their careers as artists or thought leaders forward.

Our Scholarships vary in level from $500 off, 50% off and full scholarship.

 

1. BOC AND OR INDIGENOUS SCHOLARSHIP: For beings of color, including multi-racial creators and or First Nations/ Indigenous creators.

2. LOCAL ARTIST SCHOLARSHIP: For any artist or curious mind, local to the area of which the Residency or Intensive is taking place.

3. SHIFT MINDS SCHOLARSHIP: For prodigies out there with radical ideas and artistic expression that can shift the mind of the masses and that need financial assistance in the process.

Scholarship applications close October 1st, 2022.

2. PAY IT FORWARD

What was one act of kindness a stranger did for you that stuck with you until even today? 

Random acts of kindness are much needed in the world today, they are a boost for hope in humanity, a beautiful sweep of good feeling for the person both giving and receiving. 

 

Pay- it-forward is an expression of kindness and indiscriminate love. For us it’s a concept that tells us that we can make a difference in the lives of others by giving when we can, and honouring random and indiscriminate acts of kindness. 

As an artist, it can be difficult to get your foot through the door, to get the kinds of opportunities to network and to create art. To have the courage and confidence to pursue arts as your main career. For Momentom, artists are just as integral for collective evolution as engineers and scientists of our times. Artists are the ones who dare to think WAY outside the box, that train spiritually to find comfort in the unconventional and who train to get into flow states to create hypothetical dreams into concrete reality. 

But not everyone has the chance to get out of the matrix, or get out of their waitress job, to  take a month in an artist residency. This is why we set up the pay it forward program. If you’d like to help a random human, we would love to help you help them. 

Here is how it works:

  1. Choose how much you’d like to donate (partial or full residency,) 
  2. Choose which art industry you’d like to see move forward
    Express what is something you’d like to see change moving forward in the world (animal rights, farm guide for children) and we will try to match you 
  3. Choose if you’d like to get to know your random new friend personally or keep it anonymous
  4. We get you in touch with the person we randomly select 
  5. You change someone’s life
