Application details and selection criteria
Applications for 2013 have now closed.
An independent panel appointed by the Foundation will create a shortlist of candidates for each residency. However, the final selections will rest with the residency hosts.
Selection will be based on several factors, including your:
- record of achievement – artists must have had at least one group show and one solo show
- specific artistic rationale for wishing to be resident in Asia
- proposed residency project and its quality and significance. This may include research, meeting with identified artistic/cultural influences, creating a new body of work and/or artistic collaborations
- ability to develop networks and work collaboratively
- understanding of the aims of the Asia New Zealand Foundation.
What’s expected of you
Successful candidates will be required to provide progress reports of their residency to the Asia New Zealand Foundation.
On their return to New Zealand, you must seek opportunities to share your experiences. This could mean an exhibition, giving presentations or an artist’s talk, or publishing articles.
