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.
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.
We take great pride in creating new thought forms and new arts forms as a means to healing and helping collective awakening.
If you have any ideas that are radical, edgy and with a greater intention to create while in residency with us, these opportunities are for you. The more multi-dimensional, the more out of the box and the more it takes into consideration mother earth, the more interested we are.
Once accepted, you will be responsible for acquiring all materials to create the art piece while in residency. Your commitment is to complete your art piece by the end of the residency and to expose the world to.
If you are interested in building installations and or eco-designs, sculpture, the Green Residency is for you.
If you are interested in music production, the Maderas Residency is for you.
If you are interested in choreography, the Circus Island Residency is for you.
If you are interested in conscious relations/ contact dance or aerials, Guatemala and Indonesia Residency is for you.
Momentom Collective offers a total of five (5) scholarships per Residency season. If selected, you will receive one month in your residency of choice.
Scholarship applications close November 1st, 2021.
We open two fairy fellowship per residency to minimize costs of the residency at $500 off.
These fellowships are for residents coming in for a minimum one month stay and who can prove that they have financial difficulties. As part of the exchange, Momentom requires 2 written blog in exchange of your experience and and one gift that pertains to your art. For example, DJ set for Momentom to promote, 15 photos if you are a photographer, 2 “how to” video if flow arts etc Please check off the question “are you applying for fairy fellowships” on your applications for residency. If approved, we will deduct your final stay.
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
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 are looking to study, 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 (Work traders work in residency). Momentom also sees internships as potential apprenticeships for those who are thinking to to join Momentom in the long run.
