Hello, I am new to this forum. I was excited to see Tending Spaces Fellowships develop. I am however disappointed in the qualifications around it. I have attended one retreat years ago, prior to really knowing or understanding what a reflective, mindfulness, meditative retreat was really about. Now, that I have invested more time, thought and practice into it and would like to further integrate integrating it into my artistic practice, I only qualify for 50% funding. This is disappointing. Thank you however for the initiative.


50% funding is the baseline for individuals with prior retreat experience. Most retreat centers also offer additional need-based support, determined on a case-by-case basis.
