New Zealand Pacific Studio
New Zealand Pacific Studio is a non-profit residency centre for the arts.
The five-acre facility provides writers / artists / creative practitioners / researchers with much-needed space and time to work.
The cross-artform and multi-cultural hub opens its doors year-round for this intensive creative practice/research and for dialogue with other artists in residence - about one-third of our residents are based abroad.
There is also the opportunity to connect with the Wairarapa/Tararua community.
The objectives of NZPS:
- 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.
