Funding is available for international artist costs if there are direct benefits to New Zealand artists, practitioners or arts organisations. This includes projects where the international artist offers:
- Creative or professional development opportunities e.g. workshops, masterclasses, mentoring
- An artistic collaboration with a New Zealand artist
- Cultural exchange opportunities
We do not fund international artist costs if the main focus is to develop create, perform or exhibit their own work.
The application must be made by a New Zealand artist or arts organisation or an international arts organisation, but international artists cannot apply directly. See our general eligibility criteria.
