Artist in Residence 2024: Kate van der Drift

Kate van der Drift is our 2024 Artist in Residence and will be based at Waitawa Regional Park.

Exploring watery worlds

Kate connects with and is inspired by the uncertain and changing nature of wetlands.

During her residency she will:

  • explore the wetlands in the park
  • record their character and composition with ‘cameraless prints’.

Kate is a keen kayaker, surfer and free diver - skills that will be useful when she ventures into and along the waterways.

She intends to exhibit her work at the park during the residency, and in a nearby gallery afterwards.
