Wellington Asia Residency Exchange – Programme guide
Wellington Asia Residency Exchange (WARE) is an artist-in-residence programme that has two facets – residency and exchange.
WARE generally supports one residency and one exchange each year: one artist from Asia will visit Wellington, and one Wellington artist will go to either of Wellington's sister cities, Beijing or Xiamen in China. The Council is currently reviewing the exchange facet of the WARE programme and will not offer that facet this year, 2019.
Residency artists must be from Asia and will be invited by an arts organisation or institution. They will stay at the historic Bolton Street Sexton’s Cottage.
WARE residency programme
Exchange artists will be Wellington-based. In the past they have been accommodated by either Red Gate Gallery in Beijing or the Chinese European Arts Centre (CEAC) in Xiamen.
