The purpose of this Fellowship is to develop the arts and/or the exploration of local history in the Wairarapa region, enriching Aratoi Museum of Art and History’s programme and connecting with communities. Creative practitioners or researchers are invited to propose a project that extends their practice and is based on an interest in the region, including the role of Aratoi Museum of Art and History.
Selection will be based on the nature and strength of an applicant’s proposed project and the degree to which all parties will benefit from it: the Friends of Aratoi and NZPS – in terms of community connections, Aratoi itself – in terms of its public programme, and the resident practitioner – in terms of their practice. Applicants could be writers, natural and cultural historians and storytellers, visual artists, curators, producers or film-makers. Cross-disciplinary practice is welcomed. Fellows can be at any stage in their creative ‘careers.’
