La Wayaka Current is an artist-led organisation developing projects in connection to remote environments, ecology and communities.
This is a unique opportunity to live inside and together with a remote indigenous community isolated in wild natural environments. Due to the extremity of the place we ask scenario based questions to see how applicants will react to situations, find out if this project is suited for them and that they will get the best from it.
We do not accept applicants from those interested in filming and photographing local people in the community, or making documentaries of people there. We are interested in involving creative people with a flexible, open approach who have relevant interests in the local context rather than casual interest of the ‘other’. We focus on experimentation and growth both personally and creatively.
This an incredibly enriching opportunity to remain open and learn from a community living in connection with the natural world entirely, spiritually and daily and to create long-term cultural bridges, awareness and inspire shifts in perspectives personally, as well as for future bodies of work and creative practice.
