Supported by Te Urungi Innovation funding, Satellites launched a new website, magazine and international artist programme on 7 March as part of its ongoing mahi to support and promote Asian-diaspora artists in Aotearoa. 

The first-of-its-kind website is a rich resource of Asian-diaspora artists in New Zealand. It features an extensive archive covering many artists dating as far back as the 1880s and is accompanied by an online magazine - a home for new essays and celebrations of contemporary Asian art in Aotearoa. Throughout the year, Satellites will be presenting visits by a range of international artists, including talks, performances and workshops. 

"With these three projects, we hope to enhance access to cultural knowledge for Aotearoa Asian artists," says Director Rosabel Tan, "and to create a resource for future generations to draw on and be inspired by." 

"Even relatively recent histories are sometimes hard for artists, students and arts programmers to find," adds Editorial Director Emma Ng. "This project celebrates the work of artists across many decades, making materials related to their practices freely available and easily accessible."
