NZ Pacific Studio is a programme that provides creative practitioners with space to work intensively on a project of their design.
We have hosted nearly 500 residents since 2001.
The focus is on creative production and in enabling connections with the community.
We offer residential spaces located throughout the Wairarapa and Tararua, ranging from self-contained cottages or within family homes - some are quite rural, others are nearer to town.
We also facilitate linkages with the nearby creative - the region has rich resources for arts, culture and history.
We welcome applicants from New Zealand and abroad, working in any discipline - writers, visual artists, etc.
Residencies are a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of three months.
Residencies are self-funded and self-catered.
Sponsored fellowships are also offered, conditional on funding (when available, information is posted on the "News" section of the NZPS website: www.artistresidency.org.nz and on the our Facebook page). A registered charity, NZ Pacific Studio welcomes sponsorships, volunteers, donations and memberships.
Please e-mail a short biography, a short description of what you will work on during the residency, CV/resume with 2 references, and a representative sample of your creative/academic work. Please keep your file to about 1mb. We normally reply within one week.
