Proposals sought for new New Zealand work


The New Zealand International Arts Festival (NZIAF) is committed to fostering the development of new work from New Zealand artists and companies and invites arts practitioners from all artistic disciplines to submit applications for inclusion in the NZIAF’s Show and Tell.

NZIAF seeks to continually engage with the creative sector and encourages new work of great promise. Show and Tell is but one method employed by NZIAF as a vehicle to support the development of new ideas and concepts with the potentiality of presentation by NZIAF and/or other national and international presenters.

Financial assistance is given to selected applicants to progress their initial concept to a form whereby they are able to meaningfully present and convey a solid sense of their project’s potential to industry partners and presenters.

The Show and Tell process culminates in those presentations being given in Wellington later in the year to invited Festival Directors, industry partners and presenters.
