NZ Pacific Studio offers supported residencies or ‘fellowships’ through the generosity of sponsorships from individuals and institutions of the Wairarapa/Tararua community.
Fellowship opportunities - usually 2 to 3 weeks long - may change according to funding periods and may not be offered annually. They cover accommodation and local transportation. Fellowships are self-catering, and fellows arrange for their own transportation to the Wairarapa.
Most fellowships - the exception is the Lavinia Winter Fellowship - come with the commitment to extend community outreach, and NZPS assists with the logistics of arranging these activities.
Fellows may choose to donate a work of art to the NZ Pacific Studio or to their sponsor.
Fellowships are available to an individual. However, an applicant is welcome to propose a collaborative project, but the fellowship would only apply to the applicant and additional parties would need to cover their costs. Additionally, an applicant is welcome to propose a project that extends beyond the specified period, but additional accommodation and transportation costs would have to be met by the applicant.
