The mission at Earthskin Muriwai is to support excellence in the creative arts and foster environmental stewardship, through offering monthly residencies to established artists and environmental innovators wishing to focus and extend their practice. It provides an opportunity for collaborative, shared or individual work of up to three residents.
The resident is required to offer either; a public talk on their work, a workshop, or a post-residency exhibition, as well as a koha (gift) of a piece of work on completion.
A sacred space, the main house is nestled inside a valley of ancient bush, offering an introspective flavour. The house has been created as ecologically as possible, and is magical in quality and care. Earthskin Muriwai operates on permaculture principles, capturing rain water, composting all organic material, developing food gardens, worm farming and minimising all waste.
There are two double beds, two bathrooms and a kitchen, with the possibility of also sleeping in the yurt. We are able to house a maximum of three residents at a time.
Artists can choose to share their studio spaces as they wish
Muriwai is located on the west coast of Auckland, New Zealand. 15 minutes walk to the Muriwai beach.
