Toi Pōneke is calling for proposals from Wellington-based Visual Artists for our 2019 Visual Arts Residency. This 13 week residency culminates in an exhibition of a new body of work at Toi Pōneke Gallery in November 2019.
The aim of this residency is to support an artist to develop a body of work and provide them with resources to dedicate themselves full time to their practice for a period of 13 weeks. Applicants need to have had previous experience of a mounting a solo exhibition and be looking to develop their practice further.
