Applications sought for Auckland regional parks Artist in Residence programme 2010
12 Jan 2010
Proposals are sought from established artists for Auckland regional parks Artist in Residence programme 2010. Visual artists and other creators including writers, composers and choreographers are invited to apply.
The purpose of the residency programme is to share with park visitors, an artist's insight and view of the environment.
Portions, extracts and copies of the work they produce while on site are later interpreted for the public, often in the park in which they worked.
The 2009 artists in residence Johanna Pegler and Siobhan Harvey have now completed their residencies at Awhitu Regional Park.
This is an opportunity to live in a regional park for eight weeks and to create work in a natural setting in a medium of your choice.
The residency would suit an artist who is self sufficient and open to working in the outdoors.
