The Jan Warburton Charitable Trust was established to support contemporary art in Aotearoa New Zealand. 


The JWCT is the major sponsor of Gasworks New Zealand Artist Residency - an annual opportunity for an early/mid-career New Zealand artist to undertake a fully-funded residency at Gasworks in London. Recent recipients of the Gasworks Residency include Sriwhana Spong, Katrina Beekhuis, Hikalu Clarke, and Christina Pataialii. 


Further to Gasworks, we have a small fund for artist's projects. We support a range of activity, but we particularly like supporting late-emerging and early mid-career artists to produce ambitious work, or participate in projects that add to the vibrancy and diversity of New Zealand's art ecology. Applications can be made online here
