Asia:NZ Foundation Artist-In-Residence Programme

The Asia New Zealand Foundation is calling for applications 
for its six artist-in-residence programmes for 2012.
Professional emerging and mid-career artists with a record of achievement 
are invited to submit a written application(s) to Asia New Zealand Foundation 
by no later than 5pm on Friday, 28 October 2011.

The rapid economic and social changes taking place in Asia 
have created some dynamic emerging contemporary art scenes. 
The region is being visited by an increasing number of international artists 
who want to engage in these changes first-hand.

Successful candidates will live and work in Asia 
at one of six prestigious residency organisations for two to three months, 
and will have the opportunity to meet and work 
with other international artists and curators.

The six programmes are:
1Shanthi Road, Bangalore, India
Changdong Art Studio, Seoul, Korea
Institute for Provocation, Beijing, China
NS43 exchange, S-AiR Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan
Taipei Artist Village, Taiwan
Three Shadows, Beijing, China

Preference will be given to projects with potential 
for artistic collaboration and exhibition outcomes. 
Successful candidates will be required 
to provide progress reports of their residency to Asia:NZ, 
and to seek opportunities to share their experience on their return to New Zealand. 
This could mean an exhibition, a series of presentations or artists talks, 
or publication of articles.

Asia:NZ will provide:
a return economy airfare between New Zealand and Asia
a daily stipend for food, transport and incidentals
NZ$500 towards the cost of materials
the cost of a single entry tourist visa where required
a contribution of NZ$300 towards travel insurance.

Applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents 
and able to exercise a degree of autonomy and self reliance.
