NZ Pacific Studio offers supported residencies or ‘Fellowships’ through the generosity of individuals and institutions of the Wairarapa and Tararua communities. Usually 2 to 3 weeks long, Fellowships provide opportunities to focus on one's creative work, with complimentary accommodation and local transportation. Most Fellowships come with the expectation to extend community outreach, and we assist with arranging these activities. 

An applicant may propose a collaborative project, or a project that extends beyond the sponsored period, but the fellowship only applies to an individual applicant for the period of the Fellowship. Transportation to/from Wairarapa is not included, and artists provide for their own meals. 

Application notices for Fellowships are listed below, in the ‘news’ section of this website, on our Facebook page, and on websites such as The Big Idea, New Zealand’s longest running creative website.
