Auckland Artists Residency Deadline approaching

The Artists Residency I did based in the Auckland Regional Parks is coming up again – the application deadline is in 2 weeks (cut off is 17th February) so if anyone local reading this is thinking of applying then I very much encourage you to! It was a fantastic experience being based in such a beautiful part of New Zealand and having time dedicated to making new work… I’ve written about my experiences and the ramifications before here Why do an Artists Residency and funnily enough am applying for another international residency at the moment so am doing some deep thinking & planning as to the project/s I want to pursue for it. That process alone is invaluable, consider this question: if you were gifted 2 months of free time to make art, what would you do?

I strongly advise not leaving application until the last minute – the details and application info are all available here: Apply now to be our 2015 Artist in Residence
