Professional Artists in New Brunswick

Hill Strategies Research used data from Statistics Canada’s 2021 long-form census to examine the demographics, employment characteristics, and incomes of artists in New Brunswick.

This article is part of a larger project, which includes:

  1. A survey of cultural venues (now in the data analysis phase)
  2. Interviews with operators of cultural venues (in progress), an analysis of census and
  3. Other data on the arts and culture in the province (including this report).

Hill Strategies has partnered with ArtsLink NB, l’Association acadienne des artistes professionnel.le.s du N-B (AAAPNB), and the Owens Art Gallery at Mount Allison University.

The project is steered by a committee including Julie Whitenect of ArtsLink NB, Carmen Gibbs and Laurence Dubuc of AAAPNB, Emily Falvey of the Owens Art Gallery, and artist Emma Hassencahl-Perley.
