Seeking independent and innovative artists…
We seek applications from adventurous artists interested in the ‘wilder’ parts of Auckland and the creatures who live in and around them.
The selected artist will be embedded in a regional park for 8 weeks to make new work fuelled by being in amongst nature.
Free accommodation within the park is offered along with a weekly fee to assist with purchasing materials, tools and equipment.
This residency is open to all artists and creatives – whatever their art form.
Applicants need to propose a concept, articulate a clear outcome and be prepared to interact in some way with park visitors or the public.
The residency moves each year. In 2018 the selected artist can choose between Duder Regional Park or Waharau Regional Park.
Opens - 15 December 2017
