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. 

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.

A registered charity, we welcome donations, members, volunteers, and sponsors.
