What is NG Art Creative Residency?

A home away from home, NG Art Creative Residency is an international multi-disciplinary creative residency set in the 15th Century Provencal Homestead,
Mas des Pelerins (House of Pilgrims).

 It offers a place of respite, nourishment and enlightenment for artists, writers, poets, musicians, performers, filmmakers, photographers, academic scholars, and other creatives who seek to enrich their process, embark on imaginative endeavours, and immerse themselves in an environment of reflection and creative freedom – in the studio and en plein air.

Directed and run by long-standing gallerist, curator, entrepreneur, director and visionary Nicky Ginsberg, the NG Art Creative Residency is the collective brainchild of Ginsberg’s creative offspring; NG Art Gallery, the Chippendale Creative Precinct, Carlton Project Space, Kensington Contemporary, Mission Restaurant Bar, and The Chip Off The Old Block.
