New Zealand Pacific Studio

New Zealand Pacific Studio - a home for the arts in the hills of the Wairarapa.

Founded in 2001, New Zealand Pacific Studio is a non-profit international residency centre celebrating its 15th anniversary in 2016. Over the past 15 years, about 500 creative people have lived and worked at the centre.

Our five-acre facility provides writers / artists / creative practitioners / researchers with much-needed space and time to work on a project of their choice.  The cross-artform and multi-cultural hub opens its doors year-round for this intensive creative practice/research. We also foster dialogue between the residents and the Wairarapa/Tararua community. A registered charity, we welcome donations, members, volunteers, and sponsors. 

Our objectives:

  1. 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.
  2. Facilitate the finding and sharing of stories and creative processes that preserve and enrich the local culture, history and environments.
  3. Embed the creative processes and outputs of our residencies within the nearby communities of the Wairarapa and Tararua regions.
