It will provide an opportunity for artists and curators to spend six to eight weeks in Christchurch developing new work or working towards an exhibition. The programme aims to assist in the continuing development of a sustainable visual arts culture in New Zealand.

* Material costs supplement (if required)

Artists or curators will be selected by the committee on the basis of the quality and innovation of their practice. Potential benefits to the applicant, the organisation, and to the broader art community will also be considered. The applicant must be a New Zealand resident.


Contemporary visual artists or curators from New Zealand pursuing an innovative practice in a professional capacity are eligible to apply.
