Fulbright New Zealand and the James Wallace Arts Trust call for applications to the 2012 Fulbright-Wallace Arts Trust Award. This award recognises the achievement and potential of an outstanding mid-career or senior New Zealand visual artist by providing a unique opportunity to undertake a three-month residency at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, California. One award, valued in excess of US$30,000, is offered each year.
Headlands Center for the Arts (www.headlands.org) provides an unparalleled environment for the creative process and the development of new work and ideas. Through artists’ residencies and public programs, they offer opportunities for reflection, dialogue and exchange that build understanding and appreciation for the role of art in society.
The recipient of the 2012 Fulbright-Wallace Arts Trust Award will be honoured along with other winners of Wallace Art Awards in September, and will be eligible to undertake either a Spring residency from March to May 2013, or a Summer one from June to August 2013, as mutually agreed by the grantee and Headlands Center for the Arts.
