FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can you explain what you mean by “Artist residency”?  

Momentom’s Residencies are artist residencies designed for creative entrepreneurs and artists (You!).

Think co-working space meets ashram meets  movement arts training center. The only one of its kind in the world, artist Residencies are designed to house 40+ people to create an inspiring community, where residents have access to training spaces and daily schedule in arts and entrepreneursghips. The idea is to provide the best space for you to work on your project, attend any workshops you want, meetpartners or take the time to produce your works of art. It’s an entirely new way of living. 

 

What is on the schedule?  

Our core programming for all residencies provide training of the Mind (meditation, mindfulness)  Body (Movement, Aerials, DAnce ect) and Spirit (Ceremonies, Authentic relating, Non-Violent Communication ect). All residencies have a specific focus on certain art forms – whether it be music production, on aerials, on dance and others on yoga, plant medicine, circus, or flow/fire dancing, without ever derailingfrom the core programming of mind, movement and spirit. 

Whatever the focus, an emerging artists and creative entrepreneurs can take part of the residency and find their space within it.

Do you offer any other opportunities? 

Yes, we offer internships. 

Internships are offered by Momentom for students seeking extracurricular hours at a University or who are looking to grow their skills in a specific domain of business. 

Interns will learn and acquire the skills to run a residency or create large transformational events. 

The difference between internships and worktrade are a) the amount of hours and b) internships are online with access to residency. I.e. the hours can be completed remotely. 

Momentom also sees internships as potential apprenticeships for those who are thinking to  to join Momentom in the long run.
