With the generous support of Connells Bay Sculpture Trust and Jenny and Andrew Smith, the Te Tuhi Graduate studio residency offers one year of free studio accommodation for a recent master’s level graduate artist at Te Tuhi Studios at Cheshire St. 

Te Tuhi Studios at Cheshire St is located within the station building at Parnell Station in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Through the studios and Platform Gallery, Te Tuhi aims to support contemporary artists who have an interest in experimental and social practices by providing an environment where they can develop their practices and expand their networks. 

The selected artists are not required to make an object or exhibition, but they will receive curatorial feedback and up to half a day of technical support, as required. They will be expected to present at least one talk about their practice and participate in two open studio events during the year. Read the Studio policy here. 

To support the development of artists through the studio programme or to get involved with our larger philanthropic programme, please contact Executive Director Hiraani Himona here.
