idle women residency

summer invitation
​(women in residence) 2017

12 June – 20 August

This summer we are inviting women to join us in an open boat invitation – women are welcome to express an interest to stay on board the Selina Cooper to enjoy the peaceful creative space of the boat and to work with us to generate an offer for other women in exchange for time aboard.

Women can apply to stay for as little as 2 nights or up to two weeks between   ​12 June – 20 August.

Time in residence can be used for any creative means, a place to read and think, to draw, to make, to cook, to sew or to plot. In exchange for this private creative time we ask you to make an offer for other women, to facilitate a workshop, perform a reading,  ​share a home made cheese & onion pie or teach a skill.

Idle women caretakers will be your neighbors on the towpath and will offer support with boat living as well as with planning and delivering your offer.
