Dunedin City Council. Closes 25 Jan 2019
Dunedin is an amazing place to live and work, and if you were to ask anyone living here, they’ll tell you that there’s something indescribably special about our city. It’s small enough to feel like you’re part of a community, but big enough to ensure that there’s always something going on. From the great outdoors to arts, culture and education, all within 10 minutes of the city centre.
The Dunedin Public Art Gallery is offering a 6 to 8 month internship, providing the opportunity for someone with a demonstrated commitment to developing their curatorial practice to join our team.
The Curatorial Internship is a training position for emerging New Zealand art curators, supported by funding from Creative New Zealand.
Reporting to the Public Programmes and Collection Manager, you will be a member of the Gallery’s Public Programmes and Collection team. You will be working in all areas relating to the development and presentation of exhibitions, public programmes and publications, including working with contemporary art and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery collection.
This internship will require you to work collegially within a team environment. It involves working with artists, writing for exhibitions and publications, developing conservation and art handling knowledge, contributing to exhibition design and layout, interacting with members of the public, and contributing to the development and presentation of visitor programmes.
If you have a positive outlook, a demonstrated interest in exhibition making, and a strong willingness to take on the diverse tasks required of a trainee curator in a public gallery environment, then we look forward to hearing from you.

PARK(ing) Day Wellington call for proposals
The Wellington Sculpture Trust Closes 27 Jan 2019
Community & Access Arts, Performing Arts, Visual Arts
Once again, the Wellington Sculpture Trust, in association with the Wellington City Council and with support from Creative Communities, is organising Wellington PARK(ing) Day, to be held on Friday 8 March 2019. We seek submissions from people or groups interested in taking over an inner city car park for this day.
PARK(ing) Day is an annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and designers collaborate temporarily to transform metered parking spaces into living parks. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organisations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar, but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.
The mission of PARK(ing) Day is to call attention to the need for more urban open space, to generate critical debate around how public space is created and allocated, and to improve the quality of the urban human habitat … at least until the meter runs out!
We are looking for temporary installations that are creative, innovative and engaging. They should be vibrant and accessible; enliven our cityscape for one day; provoke reflection about how we use public space; and encourage interaction and engagement. https://www.sculpture.org.nz/
GLOBAL CANVAS INTERNATIONAL CHILDREN’S ART COMPETITION (INTERNATIONAL)
Deadline: January 31, 2019
The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is excited to announce the launch of our annual Global Canvas Children’s Art Competition 2019. The theme this year is ‘Habitats of the World’! Shortlisted entries will be displayed at an exciting judging and prizegiving day at London’s Natural History Museum on March 7th!
The competition is FREE to enter and open to groups of children – this could be a club, class, year group or a whole school. Entrants are asked to create a mini-exhibition based on the theme, using paint, pencils, knitting, sculpture or any other techniques you can think of – we love recycled art too!
The Global Canvas competition this year will be a celebration of all the weird and wonderful places where animals make their homes – whether that’s an ocean, a desert, or even a rotting log!
Global Canvas gives children the chance to investigate the threats faced by wild animals and to their habitats and think about what they can do to help. Children could be encouraged to help wildlife at school or home, perhaps by planting a window box with bee friendly flowers, making bird boxes, or creating a small pond? Could your school go plastic straw or glitter free?
A photograph of your entry along with a completed entry form should be sent to us by the closing date of January 31st, 2019. Please visit our website for more details: https://www.samanthasbell.com/%EF%BB%BFglobal-canvas-international-childrens-art-competition-international/

2019 ANZAC Bridge Fellowship with NZ Pacific Studio
Closes 19 Jan 2019
New Zealand Pacific Studio and the Friends of the ANZAC Memorial Bridge Kaiparoro invite applications for a three-week ANZAC Fellowship in northern Wairarapa, New Zealand. This Fellowship has been awarded annually since 2006. The purpose of this Fellowship is to maintain a rich cultural context for the annual commemorations held at the ANZAC Memorial Bridge.
Creative practitioners of any kind are invited to make a project proposal that explores issues of war, peace, loss, memory, and identity, and that involves the participation of the nearby communities of Eketahuna/Tararua and Wairarapa (including Kaiparoro/Mount Bruce, Mauriceville, Rongokokako and Nireaha) to contribute to or enrich the annual ANZAC memorial service held at the bridge on Wednesday, 25 April 2019, at 2pm.
The fellowship is to be taken up from 5 April to 26 April 2019. Accommodation will be at Whakahirihiri, a modern private home in Mt Bruce, at the same time as the Tararua District Fellow who is tasked with representing the stories of the Tararua District. Whakahirihiri is close to ANZAC Bridge and Pukaha Mt Bruce. The property looks out onto native bush and has bush/rural walking tracks.
NZ Pacific Studio was instrumental in forming the group Friends of ANZAC Bridge (FOAB) in 2006 which has restored the bridge and continues to maintain it. Friends of ANZAC Bridge received the Supreme Award at the Trustpower Community Awards in the Tararua District in 2015 and NZPS was a Regional Winner in the Awards in 2018.
The Fellowship is made possible with a community grant from Trust House Community Enterprise, Masterton, which comes with the mandate that the fellowship project engage the residents of the nearby communities on and around ANZAC Day (25 April) 2019.
The successful Fellow would need to cover their travel costs to and from the Wairarapa and buy their own food while in residence. Pick-up from and drop off to Masterton railway or bus station is complimentary. A car is available for modest local travel. A Fellow should bring necessary equipment and supplies with them, or liaise with NZ Pacific Studio about purchasing them once in residence.
NZPS will assist the ANZAC Fellow to link with local communities and support project activities and events. There will also be a contribution of up to $500 to the artist towards project costs.
The ANZAC Fellowship is available to an individual. However, an applicant is welcome to propose a collaborative project alongside the Tararua Fellowship.
