Artist in residency programme applications now open!
(13th December 2019 - 31st January 2020)
The Newtown Community & Cultural Centre (NCCC) alongside Opportunity Arts (OA) are offering a 3-month artist’s residency at the Community Centre in Newtown, Wellington, New Zealand for three months at the start of 2020.
NCCC and OA know that art is vital to a healthy and happy society. NCCC has a spare studio space and OA have lots of know-how about supporting artists – especially those working in the community/social space. Together we've managed to pull together a little list of various different offerings to make this a pretty awesome wee residency package in the heart of the Newtown community.
We encourage anyone that wants a place to create (any medium, including music/writing/theatre) to apply. We are also open to arts organisations wanting office space to continue their mahi to also apply. While we welcome applications from solo practitioners who are wanting to focus on their own practice, priority will be given to artists who have a strong interest in community development, public art, socially engaged work and/or community arts practices. The selection committee also will look favourably on folks that are emerging in their careers.
NCCC and OA welcome people with no formal training in the arts and we welcome people from diverse backgrounds and with unique needs. If you have any questions, or find filling out forms challenging, get in touch and we can help ya!
We don't want anyone to be discouraged from applying - so if you have an idea, have at us!
