An Art-Science Residency

Te Ataata

Each year, a French scholar is being hosted under this programme. It is a joint initiative between the Embassy of France in New Zealand and Auckland University of Technology's Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies.

Context

Auckland has a worldwide reputation for its quality of life. In large part this is because of its outstandingly beautiful natural environment and the lifestyle opportunities it offers.

The Te Ataata resident is welcomed by Auckland University of Technology (AUT)'s Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies where design is recognised as a major discipline to advancing transdisciplinary learning and research.

Creation

This is an opportunity for a practice-based French scholar to work alongside university peers on interdisciplinary art-science research, with access to the same facilities, expertise and materials as staff during their stay.

The range of discipline areas include art and design; communication studies; engineering, computer and mathematical sciences; and creative technologies.

The resident is invited to take part in a range of activities such as seminars, workshops, public events, conferences, media interviews, research etc.
