New Zealand Pacific Studio
28 Jun 2019
Interests Our residential spaces are located throughout the Wairarapa and Tararua. We provide creative practitioners with space to work intensively on a project of their design.
Two creative practitioners working in any medium, and located in New Zealand or abroad, are invited to apply for a three-week supported residency with New Zealand Pacific Studio, Wairarapa.
NZ Pacific Studio offers two 3-week ‘Masterton Fellowships’ for two individuals (who can work separately or collaboratively) with thanks to the generous support of the Masterton District Council.
A community outreach component must be offered as part of the application.
The 3-week residency must be completed before 31 March 2020.
Accommodation costs are sponsored (valued at NZ$1260 each) for the Masterton Fellows and complimentary transportation is offered from the train/bus station in Masterton. The residency is self-catering.

As well as working on their own project, the Masterton Fellow will offer a cultural/artistic programme that will creatively engage the Masterton community. There is some funding to support costs of community activities. Potential costs could be indicated in your application.

Applicants can be writers, visual artists, curators, dancers, musicians, film-makers, photographers, historians, storytellers -- there are no limitations. NZ Pacific Studio invites applications from either an individual or from two artists applying jointly to undertake a collaborative project. Applicants may also propose a project of more than three weeks in duration, but accommodation and transportation costs beyond the Fellowship period would be met by the applicant.
