Artist residencies in Asia open for applications

Established New Zealand artists across all artforms are invited to apply for residencies in New Delhi and Beijing, offered annually by Creative New Zealand in partnership with the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

The two three-month residencies are the Sanskriti Residency in New Delhi, hosted by the Sanskriti Foundation of India, and the Red Gate Residency, based at the Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, China.

The Arts Board of Creative New Zealand will cover the cost of accommodation and facilities, and provide artist stipends of $10,000 each while they are in residence. The Asia New Zealand Foundation will meet the cost of return airfares.

Both residencies are open to established artists in any artform who wish to pursue projects related to the location or the facilities of the host organisation. Priority will also be given to applicants who show an appreciation of the environment and contemporary culture of the host country.

Beijing's Red Gate Residency (www.redgategallery.com) is a well-established residency programme and offers studios and accommodation. It also has access to the facilities of the Beijing Arts Academy.

The Sanskriti Residency is hosted by the Sanskriti Foundation of India (www.sanskritifoundation.org). The accommodation and facilities for this residency are based at the Sanskriti Foundation's Kendra campus on the outskirts of New Delhi.

Applications are due at Creative New Zealand by is 5pm, Friday 30 June 2006. Artists are expected to take up the three-month residency in New Delhi between October 2006 and June 2007 and the residency in Beijing from April to June 2007.
