New Zealand Pacific Studio
New Zealand Pacific Studio - a home for the arts in the hills of the Wairarapa.
New Zealand Pacific Studio is a non-profit international residency centre.
Our five-acre facility with seven work-spaces is open year-round, providing writers / artists / creative practitioners / researchers with much-needed space and time to work on a project of their choice.
NZPS is both a private retreat and a multi-cultural centre that interacts with the public - we foster dialogue with the Wairarapa/Tararua communities through workshops, performances, exhibitions, Open Studio Days and more.
Founded in 2001, we celebrate our 15th anniversary in 2016.
- Provide studio and residential facilities for selected national and international creative practitioners / researchers to facilitate their intensive work and to foster inter-connectivity among the residents.
- Facilitate the finding and sharing of stories and creative processes that preserve and enrich the local culture, history and environments.
- Embed the creative processes and outputs of our residencies within the nearby communities of the Wairarapa and Tararua regions.
A registered charity, we welcome donations, members, volunteers, and sponsors.
