By Whakatū Residency Programme | Nelson Arts Festival

Sunday 30th October 2022

As part of our ongoing commitment to artists living in our region, in 2022 we are proud to gift the Suter Theatre to an artist for a two-week paid residency to progress a new piece, deep dive on a particular aspect of their mahi, or just trial a whole lot of new ideas.

At the end of the two weeks, the recipient will share some of what they’ve been working with in a presentation, discussion or workshop capacity. Please join us on Sunday 30 October to see what huge talent and even bigger ideas are springing from our community!

We will be running an expressions of interest process in August - keep an eye out on the Nelson Arts Festival website if you are interested in applying.

We particularly invite submissions from artists who identify as mana whenua, tangata whenua, people of colour, disabled, neurodivergent, d/Deaf, culturally diverse, of marginalised gender or LGBTQIA+.

This event is part of the 2022 Nelson Arts Festival.
