Join us in welcoming a new staff member to the ArtsLink NB team. Amy Ash is our new Associate Director!

Amy Ash (she/they) is a queer interdisciplinary artist invested in collective care through processes of shared meaning-making.

Her practice flows from curatorial projects and writing to teaching, socially engaged action, and hands-on making. Across disciplines, they trace connectivity through intersections and overlaps between memory, learning, and wonder, to incite curiosity and kindle empathy. Often working collaboratively, she seeks to build connection by gently disrupting hierarchy to carve out space for a polyphony of personal meaning to be created within the context of a shared experience.

Amy has exhibited and curated programmes Internationally, with projects commissioned by the National Gallery London (UK), Platform Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts (Manitoba), and Third Space Gallery (New Brunswick). Amy is a member of the International Association of Art Critics and the editorial committee of Visual Arts News Magazine, and also an Instructor at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. Their work has received the support of artsnb, Art Council England, Canada Council for the Arts and the Peter McKendrick Endowment Fund for Visual Artists, and has been shared in publications such as Cmag, Visual Arts News, and CreatedHere.

Of white settler ancestry, they live in Menahqesk/Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada, which sits on unceded and unsurrendered lands that have been cared for by the Wolastoqiyik, Peskotomuhkati, and Mi’kmaq Peoples since the very beginning.

We look forward to working with Amy and are excited to have them on the team!
