Artists in Residence
Each year we select an artist to live and work in an Auckland regional park. We select a different park every year and it becomes home to the artist for an eight-week period, usually from mid October to mid December.
This opportunity is open to visual artists and composers, filmmakers, choreographers, and writers.
It is intended for mature, self-sufficient, professional artists who create a new body of work influenced in some way by the park, or by the residency experience.
The work the artist creates is later shared with park visitors and the public through an event, exhibition, concert, performance or publication.

2013 Artists in Residence - Tim Prebble and Denise Batchelor
Tim Prebble and Denise Batchelor
Tim Prebble (sound artist) and Denise Batchelor (filmmaker) have now completed their residencies in the Waitakere Ranges, but the impact of their time out west will linger on.
Tim shared works in progress (music, film and photography) at two screenings held at Huia Lodge on 15 December 2013. Tim will return to Auckland to show his work again next year.
In the meantime you can get a glimpse of the nature of his residency by reading Tim Prebble’s Music of Sound blog.
Denise is now editing and refining her Anawhata related work. Some of her films will be on long term display at Arataki Visitor Centre from February 2014, and some of her photos are exhibited at Craw Homestead – her residency house. Denise will speak on The Art of Seeing and show other works in the new year.
To see more of her work visit Denise Batchelor’s website.
