New Zealand Pacific Studio
New Zealand Pacific Studio, a non-profit residency centre for the arts, is a year-round, cross-artform and multicultural hub for intensive creative practice/research.
Our varied work-spaces provide focused and dedicated creative practitioners/researchers with much-needed space and time to work. They also have the the opportunity to connect with others -- locally in the Wairarapa/Tararua community, nationally with other New Zealand-based artists in residence, and internationally. Perhaps one-third of our residents come from abroad.
- Provide studio and residential facilities for selected national and international creative practitioners / researchers to facilitate their intensive work as well as a sense of inter-connectivity among the residents.
- Facilitate the finding and sharing of stories and creative processes that preserve and enrich our local culture, history and environments.
- Embed the creative processes and outputs of our residencies within the nearby communities of the Wairarapa and Tararua regions.
