About

MEANWHILE is an artist run initiative, driven exclusively by volunteered labour. Central to MEANWHILE is our gallery space in Wellington’s CBD. Our rent here is funded partly by our programme & maintenance budget, which is acquired through grants & fundraisers, but is predominantly maintained by our 8 studio artists.
MEANWHILE’s mission & vision is to support emerging artists both local to Te Whanganui-a-Tara and nationally in Aotearoa. Since the Level 4 restrictions implemented by the government, MEANWHILE has faced the problem of how to support our studio artists who no longer have access to their studios in a time of heightened financial precarity. As a solution we have started isolated in/sites, a weekly online programme of projects by the MEANWHILE community, alongside this Patreon as a way to work towards collaboratively reducing rent for all of our studio artists, whilst also providing our community with a space for sharing and accessing evolving art practices. As part of isolated in/sites, each week a different member of the MEANWHILE community will take over our social media channels & our website to share their stories, thoughts or recent work during this new normal now.

**All financial contributions to this Patreon will be going directly towards reducing rent for our studio artists during the period that they have no or limited access to their studios. In exchange we offer you MEANWHILE gifts sent in the post once we have access to our office & in the meantime, a weekly schedule of isolated in/sites projects, which will be accessible to all our online followers. **

Thank you to our community for the on going support and to our studio artists & volunteers. We hope you are all safe and well during this time and look forward to when we can come together as a community again. If you are unable to financially support us at this time but would like to be involved, we are also open to submissions for isolated in/sites and would love to hear from you! You can contact us at [email protected] / take a look at what we do & what we've done at www.meanwhilegallery.com and keep up with us @meanwhile_gallery (insta) or @MEANWHILE.gallery (facebook) stay safe x
