HBG Collective is thrilled to be donating a portion of the Night Market proceeds to the creation of a creative residency program for mothers of color living in Woodlawn.🙌🏽🙌🏽

Developed by mother, artist, and administrator, Wisdom Baty, in collaboration with @ExperimentalStation, the M.O.C. Creative Residency is a 2-3 month residency experience open to mothers of color living in the Woodlawn neighborhood.

The M.O.C. residency welcomes a wide range of creative practices including, but not limited to, visual arts, performing arts, culinary arts, music, and textile or indigenous crafts.

The M.O.C residency provides skill-building strategies and a holistic wellness approach in order to make the mothers’ creative practices more sustainable once the residency is over.

The residency will provide:

  • Regular access to space at Experimental Station (public space/big room/kitchen) to implement and grow one’s practice

  • A stipend for supplies and/or equipment

  • A child-care stipend or childcare on site

  • Exhibition opportunities/ public sharing of practice of new work/ creations

  • Feedback from other creative mothers of color, “studio visits,” and public receptions

  • Skill-building workshops: proposal writing, project management, business planning, etc.

  • Access to personal wellness resources: mental health, financial health, nutrition, youth engagement.
