Cross-Cultural Creation Residency
ArtsLink NB, L’Association acadienne des artistes professionnel.le.s du Nouveau-Brunswick (AAAPNB), and Mawi’Art: Wabanaki Artist Collective are once again collaborating for a cross-cultural residency: their biggest collaboration to date. The organizations are launching a call for 10 artists from the province’s three largest cultural groups: Anglophone, Francophone and Indigenous artists.* The 10 day residency will take place at Kouchibouguac National Park, and artists will have the opportunity to work on a personal project while being surrounded by the creative energies of 9 other artists. The experience of being in a new community and creating with people who have different artistic disciplines can help cross linguistic and cultural barriers and build lasting relationships with other cultures.
*The Indigenous artist participation is contingent upon availability of funding from Mawi’Art.
