Ecological Artist Residencies
Earthskin supports a network of local and international artists, through developing local havens that provide creatives with a place to create, as well as exhibit their work. Residencies and workshops give artists a grounding space to diversify their mediums and immerse themselves fully. The artists are being nourished, internally and externally, by being fed by, and living in a closer and genuine relationship with the whenua (land), and in balance with themselves. Furthermore, immersion in permaculture ethics awakens greater environmental consciousness thereby creating awareness around ethical and eco-minded art practice.
PIHA RESIDENCIES AT THE WAYGOOD FOUNDATION
The Earthskin Trust looks forward to welcoming artist applications for the coming year to Piha. We seek a diverse range of creatives to invigorate a wider sharing of ideas and practice into our communities, and the opportunity to connect to this sacred and powerful land and its waters.
The Waygood Foundation is a beautiful community and family-based sanctuary offering simplicity and gentle care. Nestled along the edge of sandhills and the wild open wave of this famous beach is our studio space in a permaculture garden fed by the springs of the Waitakere Ranges and surrounded by ancient bush.
EARTHSKIN WARKWORTH RESIDENCIES
At Warkworth where Earthskin is newly housed, we are anticipating the renovation of our Community Barn that will be ready to offer Environmental Artist Residencies at the end of 2022.
Until then two ecological residencies of 4 weeks each are open at Piha. The dates available for 2022 are the 3rd of January until the 31st of January, and the 25th of February until the 25th of March 2022 for New Zealand applicants. Applications open November and close the 2nd December 2021.
