In-house Artists


Our In-house Artist in Residence Programme

Need some extra time in the studio? Wanna develop your practice further? Take advantage of our in-house residency programme!

MAP has a number of local movers as ongoing artists in residence. They pay an affordable weekly subscription for 3 hours of studio access each week that can be accrued. MAP hosts public sharings of their works on request and they contribute to The Map publication.

A space for movement research


The MAP Studio is located at 76 Hawdon Street on the outskirts of central Ōtautahi Christchurch in Sydenham. 

The studio is 10 x 10m, with a sprung Marley dance floor, toilet and kitchen facilities, as well as office space, an excellent PA sound system, and roller door access to bring in larger items to the space. 

As an In-house Artist in Residence, you have access to the premises for an affordable rate of $20/3h a week

The MAP Sessions


Throughout 2021 and 2022, MAP hosted monthly showings, talks, and screenings of dance by our dance community. From 2023 onwards, The MAP Sessions are available on request by in-house artists and local movers. We are able to provide an MC and kai for the public.
