Modern Architecture


Wellington, the creative capital of New Zealand, is an ideal location with its distinct cultural presence,  and lively café culture.

It is also home to numerous art galleries, the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, the World of Wearable Art awards show, Cuba Dupa street festival, and public and research libraries.

The residency programme will offer a live/work studio suite ideally situated on Wellington's waterfront, just a few steps away from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa and the City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi. 



The programme will  offer a hospitable, generative platform for the production of high quality, innovative, creative, contemporary work, and to foster connections and opportunities for ongoing exchange and collaborations.

White Structure


The residency will welcome applications from artists, with an innovative project which may or may not be informed by the specific context of New Zealand, and seeking new international connections.


Fluency in English and French citizenship, or being based in France for at least five years, are also required.

Applications are reviewed based upon the quality of the proposed project and past works as well as the applicant's public speaking skills and abilities to engage with students.
