Open Call


Hosted by the Rotorua Arts Village
Organised by Arts Residencies Rotorua committee in partnership with the Rotorua Arts Village
Sponsored by the Rotorua Trust, Creative Communities Rotorua and Rotorua District Council in association with the Rotorua Arts Village Trust

Arts Residencies Rotorua is currently looking for artists (visual, writers and musicians) to participate in The Open Studio’s Project 2011/12.

As a community art space in Rotorua, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand, the Rotorua Arts Village has a commitment to growing the arts and cultural sector of the community. This means actively leading or participating in the various art and cultural projects in the local community, supporting the growth of artists practice, developing audiences for arts and cultural activities and supporting continued learning through engagement with artists and their work.

Programme Outline The Open Studio’s Project 2011/12

This is the Arts Village feedback project. Our artists asked for time in the studio’s to make a mess, make art and enjoy the space and time in our purpose designed studio’s to create. So this project set out to give them and others just that chance.

The Open Studio’s Project 2011/12 aims to connect audiences with artists. You will have complete control over how this is done throughout the period of the residency. You might create a shop, a gallery, work on an installation, and interact with visitors for a particular artistic purpose. It is essentially your call how you would like to run your 7-week project.

This project is also driven by a desire to grow the Arts in our local region. As an artist your opinion counts. We will be actively seeking your feedback and thoughts on everything from what arts means in our communities now, what you experience as an artist and what things you think we can do to make arts work even better in the future for you and the Rotorua community.

Arts Residencies Rotorua invites local, regional, national and even international artists to submit a proposal to take part in The Open Studios Project.

The deadline for submissions is

4pm Thursday the 10th of November 2011
