The Audio Foundation Artist Residency program will provide NZ artists with the exciting
opportunity to make work in a context free of traditional day-to-day pressures, to focus
on their work for a sustained three-week period. The goal of this residency is to produce
outcomes in the form of adventurous and well realised new work presented to the public.

The Audio Foundation Artist Residency aims to facilitate the research and development of
significant sound-related work – to develop individual art practices and foster
professional and artistic opportunities for the participants. Specific goals and expected
outcomes for the residency will be determined with the artist on a case-by-case basis, for
example: performances, exhibitions and/or recordings. The project would be consistent with
the Audio Foundation's aim to assist NZ sound (and related) artists in creating new
work that can be presented to the community in a professional context. For established
artists, work towards a larger project outcome will be considered. This residency is open
to candidates from all of NZ / Aotearoa.
The artist participating in the residency program will be provided with spacious studio
space and full PA facilities in the heart of Auckland's CBD, in an arts centre
dedicated to the promotion and critical discussion of their works. The Audio Foundation
would encourage the artist to engage with the local community during this period in
activities such as workshops, sound walks and/or panel discussions. The residency and its
outcomes will be promoted by the Audio Foundation.
While the AF will be providing studio / performance space for the artist-in-residence, it
will be necessary for the artist to organise their own accommodation during the residency
period. The Audio Foundation will lend all assistance possible in finding accommodation
for non-Auckland artists.
Please note that we can only pay for travel within NZ.
Proposals will be accepted for consideration up until November the 15th, 2013. The
recipient will be selected via peer-review administered by the Audio Foundation.
