Last year I applied for an art residency with Chateau Orquevaux in France for 4 weeks and received an acceptance email from them.

I'm super excited and really wish to go, but the cost and expanses may be a bit difficult for me to cover on my own.

I am fortunate enough to have a received a grant that covers a portion on the fee, however, I don't have enough for that and living expenses to be in this European country for 4 weeks straight; that would include travel fees, money for food, and last minute necessities or art materials.

This donation will help me to pay the rest of the $4500 fee and the rest will go to my round trip flight, train, Uber and taxi fare, meals and any last minute materials and necessities. 

This art residency will begin in the winter season, but because of travel restrictions, I'm more than likely to attend the residency at a later date.

I'm creating this GoFundMe to ask for help so that I can jump over this virus and financial obstacle in order to grow as an artist. 
This 4 weeks residency in Champagne-Ardenne region of France will be my first ever art residency.

I hope that you all can help no matter how small or big of a donation and I truly appreciate the support.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO DONATE AND SHARE and stay safe out there.
