SCANZ 2011: Eco sapiens — Residency Information

Dates: 17-30 January, 2011
Location: Main workshop venues – 109 Devon Street West New Plymouth,
and Pukekura Park. Various public events, workshops, installations occur during the residency.

The SCANZ 2011: Eco sapiens two week residency has been designed for individuals and groups whose focus is on developing creative, poetically pragmatic or provocative projects which raise awareness of the issues that confront us, generate connections between people, with their natural environment, and which grapple with the challenges of individual and collective evolution.

The selected residency projects are to take place in variety of spaces in and around the city. Several networked, DIY, and otherwise actively and openly distributed ways of working have been supported. Preparations are also being made for those interested to participate remotely.


Creative Residency Projects

Projects for the creative residency have been selected for their poetic pragmatics, local social engagements, and ability to instigate a mode of thinking about our understandings of ourselves and our relationships to the ecologies, energies and networks around us.

Examples of residency projects:

The Pollinator Frocks Project

Areosphere and Atmosphere


Live Food Café

Ecotones (image from Cascade)

Stories of Land and People
