4th & 11th
Our 2016 Emerging Artist Fellow Nick Davies will collaborate with the Eketahuna Youth Club to develop a new act. Nick Davies is a NZ-based circus artist / physical performer specializing in aerial straps, and also has a Master's Degree in Social Work. His Fellowship at NZ Pacific Studio is made possible through funds raised at the 'Lady in the Van' film premiere earlier this year at Regent Cinema, Masterton.
Our 2016 Emerging Artist Nick Davies will juggle and mingle at the Masterton Rotary 13th Annual Teddy Bear Picnic, Henley Lake, Masterton, a free community event open to all.
Singer-songwriter Sarah Dill, a soul-filled muscian with us from Minnesota, USA, has been performing at several venues around the Wairarapa -- a House Concert in Masterton in September; at The Tin Hut in Featherston in October; and just the other day at the Wellington Folk Festival. Next up is a music event for all ages at Ventana Creative Collective in Martinborough, open to all.
From November 1-30, NZ Pacific Studio welcomes applications for two Fellowships in 2017:
Masterton Fellowship - for artists working in any media. November 30th, midnight NZ time, is the application deadline.
Many thanks to the Winter whanau & to Masterton District Council for their financial support.
