Creation of new Artist/s in Residence opportunity needs YOU!

Artists in Residency scheme idea: Te Whare Oho at REACT are looking for artist survey feedback to help us shape a residence that supports artmaking of all genres and encourages collaborative works


Artists in Residence Idea: Te Whare Oho at Rangiwahia Environmental Art Centre Trust.

REACT would love your input with regards a concept for collaborative Creative Projects, using the house next door  (Te Whare Oho) to host artist groups/individuals coming together to create something larger than the sum total of it's parts. 

We have been made more aware than ever during the Covid lockdown that we have a little slice of paradise away from the madding crowds which we could be utilising better. 

We are geographically sited in Northern Manawatu, 24km from SH1, and could provide a handy spot mid country for artists to  meet and create together. 

We are an Environmental Arts Centre, and would love site specific or nature appreciative works to be a potential focus.

To this end we seek your thoughts too - should we bother moving ahead formally with this idea?
