international opportunities

Creative New Zealand invests in key overseas markets and art fairs to help New Zealand artists gain international success. This is done mainly through the International Programme and focuses on:

  • Developing international audiences and markets
  • Skill-building for international presentation
  • Cultural exchange programmes
  • Significant international events
  • International Presentation

Who is the International programme for?

The opportunities are targeted at international-ready New Zealand artists. If your answer is yes to every question below, then you can apply for International Programme opportunities:

  • Am I a professional artist?
  • Do I have a track record in my artform?
  • Has my work been toured / exhibited / published in New Zealand?
  • Am I ready to engage internationally?

If you answered no to any of the questions, you may still be eligible for other Creative New Zealand initiatives that can help you perform or exhibit your work internationally. There are residencies, fellowships, Quick Response Grants and Arts Grants that can also help you. Take a look at the range of opportunities currently on offer.

Think you may be eligible?
