A non-profit international residency programme founded in 2001.
We provide writers / artists / environmentalists / researchers with space to work intensively on a project of their design.
We welcome applicants living in New Zealand and abroad, as we value cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary dialogue.
We also help facilitate linkages with the Wairarapa / Tararua creative community.
Our residential spaces are located throughout the Wairarapa and Tararua.
- Provide studio & 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.
NZ Pacific Studio is a member of ResArtis, a worldwide network of artist residencies.
A registered charity, we rely on donations, members, volunteers, and sponsors.
