THE Parent Residency PROGRAM

lifting up parent artists with flexibility & Support

For more than three decades, The New Harmony Project has been committed to supporting parent writers and artists. Too often, the demands and realities of raising a family conflict with the needs and desires of an artist.

In 2019, we formalized a parent residency program at our annual conference in an effort to provide additional aid to artists and their families. Writers who attend with children are provided on-site childcare, family friendly housing and meals, and support and flexibility from The Project. Writers who elect not to bring their children are provided an additional stipend in an effort to help offset childcare costs at home.
