Announcing this year's line up on the Toi Pōneke Stage for CubaDupa.
The Toi Pōneke Art Market is back for CubaDupa, bustling with local artists bringing their goods to Abel Smith Street.
Working with other industries and groups - what is the potential for residences or having artists embedded in different spaces in the city? We welcome you bring your lunch and join us for networking, discussion, and a conversation with theatremaker Leo Gene Peters and artist Julian Priest.
HANDSHAKE 4 is the fourth iteration of the unique mentor/exhibition project that originated in 2011. The HANDSHAKE project supports New Zealand jewellery artists, allowing them to develop ideas and artworks for a succession of national and international exhibitions with the assistance of a chosen mentor.
Toi Pōneke Arts Centre is inviting artists and designers to submit a design for a public artwork on the East building at 61 Abel Smith Street, pictured below left. An artist’s fee of $5,000 is available to support one proposal from an arts/design practitioner that fulfils the criteria outlined in the project brief.
Something in mind is an exhibition of new paintings by Yvette Velvin that considers objects; tiny, beautiful things, recognisable and comfortably familiar, rendered with oils on clay, timber and linens.
WRITE ROOM is a Toi Pōneke initiative in partnership with Director Rob Sarkies and Producer Vicky Pope. This residency recognises the challenges for New Zealand screenwriters to create space in their lives to write and find a place to do their work. This opportunity is for a Wellington-based screenwriter with a feature film script at a stage that will benefit from development.
With support from Toi Pōneke, the successful candidate will undertake a 12-week residency and commit to a focused block of writing on their screenplay. The screenwriter will be provided with a studio space, stipend, and experienced creative support.
The Performance Arcade team have landed at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre. As part of our support and opportunities programme, Toi Pōneke is excited to sponsor office space for this iconic Wellington festival. The team will be working in Project Room 29 from now until 9 March 2018.
After the success of the 2017 residency, Toi Pōneke is proud to offer two dance practitioners a chance to take bold risks and test something fresh in Wellington's hottest stomping ground: NZ Fringe.
