Who can apply for Artist in Residence?
We look for mature, self-sufficient and established artists working in various art forms.
We seek artists with a proven exhibition or performance record. Artists need to commit to creating a new body of work inspired by staying in a regional park.
We will consider only New Zealand born artists or those with New Zealand residency status.
Criteria for selection for Artist in Residence
We will give priority to artists who:
- produce high quality and innovative work
- propose clear outcomes from the residency
- opt for new, site-specific work related to a specific place or park feature or to the residency experience
- produce work that encapsulates or alludes to ‘sense of place'
- offer some interaction with others e.g. park visitors, park neighbours, park volunteers.
Priority may be given to artists who:
- propose a development or departure from their previous work
- can articulate a benefit from being in the open air or in nature
- live in the Auckland region or with connections to the Auckland region.
