During their residency, the artists will engage with local community and artists though a public programme that includes studio visits and talks. Each artist will contribute work to the McCahon House Artists' Residency collection, and gift work for fundraising purposes. Alumni work can be viewed in the halls of the Lopdell Precinct.

 

The residencies are supported through funding from Creative New Zealand. The Trust is supported by many generous organisations and individuals including: The Trusts Community Foundation, ASB Community Trust, and Waitakere Ranges Local Board.

"I recommend the McCahon House Studio Residency to artists as it is a great opportunity to work and live in an incredible and mostly peaceful setting. The house and studio are well appointed and the environment around Titirangi is awesome.
