Apply for the 2023 Artist in Residence opportunity

About the Artist in Residence opportunity

Each year we select an artist to live and work in an Auckland regional park. The Artist in Residence creates new work influenced in some way by the park, which we share with the public.

We established this residency to reveal often overlooked and undervalued aspects of our parks through the artist’s eye.

Selected artists live and work in a regional park for eight weeks and respond to and evoke that place in their work. Art created is returned to where it was made and shared with park visitors and the public.

Read the information for applicants to learn more about eligibility, selection criteria, conditions and more.

Applications open for this residency on 15 December 2022 and close on 17 February 2023.

Learn about the residency experience from the artists’ perspective by watching videos from previous Artists in Residence.​​

Residency location for 2023

The residency location changes each year to highlight different aspects of our regional park network.

For 2023, the residency moves north to Tāwharanui Regional Park.
