The studios are home to a mix of artists with a range of contemporary art practices at different stages of their careers, who share Te Tuhi’s kaupapa. 

Graduate Studio Residency

The Graduate Studio Residency offers a recent Masters level graduate artist one year of free studio accommodation within Te Tuhi Studios at Parnell Station. For 12 months, the recipient will have 24-hour access to a 10m2 studio within a space shared with three other artists. Studios are furnished with basic lighting and have access to a shared kitchenette and toilets. The recipient will also receive mentoring and studio visits from Te Tuhi’s Executive Director, Programme Manager and other arts professionals.

All studio artists have a fixed-term license with Te Tuhi. This includes clauses to ensure the protection of the heritage building, and the safety of fellow studio residents and members of the public.
