Our residency programme has been created to offer local artists the opportunity to develop and work on their professional art practices, whilst providing a platform for them to experiment. With particular focus on adding to a local arts voice, we especially want to encourage engagement with the vast outdoor locations within our site, combining local art with its own heritage landscape.
Our residency offers ample TIME and SPACE to creative individuals who are interested in exploring their ceramic art practice within the landscape of the Corban Estate Arts Centre. This residency enables the creation and production of new work with open access to our onsite kiln (measurement). Due to the size restriction of the kiln, the residency would suit an artist working with smaller scale objects or a ceramic jeweller.
Artists are offered a studio space with 24 hour access
Large outdoor areas to explore on the estate
Open access to our kiln
An opportunity to hold a pop up exhibition in one of our alternative exhibition spaces
Work amongst our community of 24 onsite artists
Our summer residency round will commence from January 6 – February 2, 2020
This month long residency is ideal for an artist or artists who have an existing project or developing idea but want to push their own personal boundaries. Due to facilities on offer during the residency, an interest in ceramics, kiln-firing and exploring the Waitakere heritage space, is advantageous. However, artists with experimental proposals, with any making background, are strongly encouraged to apply.
*There is no required outcome for this residency; this opportunity is to help artists develop their practice.
