Embrace Your Creative Work with Courage

The goal of The Resilient Artist Project is to create a space where psychological health is nurtured so you can boldly create in the midst of a changing world. We will investigate the connections between spiritual health, mental health, and the creative process for Artists of faith. Artists will walk away with practical tools, and relationships with other Creatives.

How to Apply

You do not need to be a professional artists to apply. Applications will require the submission of your creative portfolio—at least five samples of creative work you are most proud of. Online portfolios or websites are preferred, but uploaded files will also be accepted. You must have a Google account (GMail) to access the application. If you don’t already have one, please take a moment to create an account here.

Selected Artists will join an intimate cohort of fellow Creatives for two in-person retreats and two online gatherings. In-person gatherings will consist of cohort sessions, instructional time, as well as time to be renewed by the beauty of nature.
