About Us

Kia ora! New Zealand Pacific Studio is an award-winning residency programme, with an internationally-recognised operational model whereby a core of supported residencies are at the heart of our programme.

Founded in 2001, we have hosted hundreds of creative practitioners from New Zealand and abroad.  They have made connections that enrich their own individual practice, as well as our local and shared communities. Together, we build personal and collective creative capability and solidarity. 

From 2001 to 2018, we were based at the historic Normandell House, in Kaiparoro Mount Bruce, at the border of Masterton and Tararua districts.  We currently operate through a network of hosts who accomodate artists on their properties; most of these hosts are artists themselves.

We look forward to welcoming you!
