Apply for the 2022 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.

About the Artist in Residence opportunity

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 2021 and close on 18 February 2022.

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

Residency location for 2022

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

For 2022, the residency moves west to Waitākere Ranges Regional Park.
