Each year we select an artist to live and work in an Auckland regional park. The Artist in Residence creates new work influenced in some way by the park, which we share with the public.
We established this residency to reveal often overlooked and undervalued aspects of our parks through the artist’s eye.
Selected artists live and work in a regional park for eight weeks and respond to and evoke that place in their work. Art created is returned to where it was made and shared with park visitors and the public.
