New Zealand Pacific Studio is the country's only residency centre for international and New Zealand creative practitioners - writers, visual artists, musicians, photographers and more - that is open year-round.
About 500 people have come to live and work at the centre since we opened our doors in 2001.
It's an enriching experience to be part of such a one-of-a-kind institution, which only exists because of the generosity of its sponsors, donors, volunteers and members.
A registered charity, we work on a small budget and appreciate support from friends.
Please donate what you can.
