Marsden School established their Artist in Residence Programme in 1999 and continues each year to build a legacy of strong associations with professional practicing artists and designers. The range and creativity of work inspiring Marsden students over the years has been extensive.

Artist in Residence 2022

Samuel Marsden Collegiate School established an Artist in Residence Programme in 1999. The purpose of the residency is to allow Visual Art students within the Department of Art and Design to gain experience of the working process of practicing artists, through working alongside them for a period of time.

The school offers for the duration of the Residency, a stipend, studio work space and contact with students both through classroom workshops and critiques, all of which will be negotiated with the successful applicant.

The length of the residency is five to six weeks. In 2022 it is anticipated that the residency will run in school term two. Specific dates may be negotiated.

At the completion of the residency, an exhibition of work created will be held at the Academy of Fine Arts at Queen’s Wharf.

Applications are invited from artists working in or across any of the traditional mediums of Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Photography or Design. It is expected the person taking up the residency will be a practicing artist who is emerging or established within New Zealand or Australia.
