Artist Residency Available

Posted Monday 25 Jan 2016

Auckland Council are seeking applications from film-makers(and other artists) for their 2016 residency. The deal is free accommodation and a modest weekly artist's fee in return for some new and original work; flavoured somewhat by the park, or by the experience of living in the park.

This year the options are a slightly shabby but remarkable cliffside bach at Anawhata with views to die for (but no mains power - just solar and gas  which is a little tricky I know) and a mod bach (with power) on the foreshore of our new park Te Rau Puriri (South Head).

All the information and application material can be found here www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/arts click on artists in residence thumbnail
