Information on our residencies:

The minimum residency period is 2 weeks and the maximum is 3 months. 

We offer residencies to selected artists at rates from NZ$420 a week. Additional days charged from NZ$60/night. ​ Prices are currently under review and can be obtained on application.

A transportation fee of NZ$ 70/week applies if the artist has no vehicle (petrol additional).

Residencies are available year-round and are self-catering. 

Please see the "What we Offer" page in the "About Us" section for information on what is provided, such as bedding, internet, and complimentary entry to the Pukaha National Wildlife Centre bird sanctuary. 

Application process:

Please e-mail your application, in one document, under 1 mb:  a short biography, a short description of what you will work on during the residency, CV/resume with 2 references, and a representative sample of your creative/academic work. We normally reply within one week.

Funding opportunities may be possible for selected NZ residents through the Creative Communities Scheme, if the artist/writer/musician/etc is willing to offer community outreach in exchange for the financial support. Please let us know if you are seeking this funding:

NZPS is a non-profit organisation, and when funding permits, we offer supported residencies (which we call "Fellowships").  Past fellowships have been for visual artists, writers, poets, young female artists, emerging artists, musicians, and for those working with ANZAC issues. We list the announcements on the"News" page of this website, on our Facebook page, and on The Big Idea website. Please read the "Fellowships" section of the website for background information.
