Fale-ship Callout

TAUTAI FALE-SHIP Home Residencies 

Artist call-out for new Moana activation

Applications close Friday 5th June 2020 at midday.  

The TAUTAI FALE-SHIP Home Residencies will feature 20 Moana artists over five months via Tautai’s website and social media platforms between July – December 2020. Artists will undertake a 1-week deep dive into exploring the creative wellbeing, inspiration, disruption, and coping mechanisms used as part of their creative processes. Each artist will receive $1000 NZD koha. This opportunity is open to arts practitioners from visual arts, music, sculpture, dance, design, poetry, prose, performing arts, film and fashion through to emerging art forms.  

Moana artists make some of their best work at home; at the kitchen table, in living rooms surrounded by family, in bedrooms and garages, in home studios where we feel safe and connected to those around us. We are constantly creating and thinking of new ideas, informed by the people and places that give life to our creativity.  

“Now is the time, more than ever, to celebrate and support artists in our own back yard.”

Courtney Sina Meredith, Director of Tautai 

We invite our community to share their home practice as artists in residence, responding to a period of global transformation through a localised lens. Experienced digitally but grounded in the physical, the TAUTAI FALE-SHIP Home Residencies place value on the everyday experiences of Moana artists operating in their own centres.
