Post Script

What is Post Script?

In April 2020, just weeks into the COVID-19 pandemic, we launched Dear Rona – Letters from Lockdown, a story collection project aimed at exploring life in the time of a worldwide pandemic. The idea was simple. We wanted to hear from you – our friends – to learn how everyone was coping with this unexpected turn of events. Part social documentary, part collective therapy, the project was an attempt to stay connected with our audience while providing a creative outlet for the panic, fear and uncertainty we’ve all experienced over the past many months. The response was incredible.

During the five month submission period (April – August) we received numerous responses in the form of emails, handwritten letters, postcards, collage art, photos, recorded messages and a few videos. We even received a pair of pandemic inspired scripts! Spanning the full range of human emotion, this project helped reinforce the fact that no two people have had the same experience.

When we launched the project, we had no real concrete plan for what to do, if anything, with the stories we received. Our original call for submissions stated that all submitted work may be used to inform a future project. We just didn’t know what that project would look like until now.

As we near the one year anniversary of this pandemic’s arrival, and begin to see a glimpse of light at the end of this tunnel, we’re excited to announce Post Script, a unique work of theatre delivered directly to your mailbox in the form of weekly postcards from an unknown friend.

Audiences can choose one of three storylines to be delivered through the mail over the course of six weeks, beginning the week of April 5 – one year after the launch of Dear Rona.

Choose A Story

Post Script #1: Self-Love and Solitude

In this script, we follow one person’s journey to self-love. After the dissolution of their marriage, they are forced to cope with the aftermath of change. COVID further disorients their routine and introduces them to a world of solitude. How do we find meaning in isolation?

Post Script #2: So Much Time = So Much Art

The timeline is neither short nor certain. Each of us are separated but globally connected through a shared experience. In this story, a young artist struggles with their own creativity, senselessly comparing their productivity to others, while searching for meaningful connection.

Post Script #3: Just Slow Down!

We live in a fast-paced society that prides productivity and hard work. Sometimes it’s easy to dismiss the subtle pleasures in our environment and be fully present. In this piece, our character finds the space to slow down and reflect on what they are grateful for while searching for ways to engage with nature and keep their mind sharp.

Buy Tickets

Due to the handwritten nature of Post Script, this production series is limited to just 100 tickets.

Tickets are $25 (plus taxes and fees = $31.67) can be purchased through Eventbrite. Don’t miss out!

Developed by Joanna Bryson, Matt Carter and Natasha MacLellan
Inspired by stories collected through the story collection project Dear Rona – Letters From Lockdown

Note: This project is not available outside of Canada. 

Cross Cultural Creation Residency

We’re so excited to open up our call for artists for this year’s Cross Cultural Creation residency! This year’s residency will be a return to the roots of creation, bringing ten artists together in Kouchibouguac National Park to create art in a low-technology setting.

The paid residency, which will take place from May 31 to June 9, 2021, is now accepting applications for artists of any discipline who are interested in leaving their high-tech set up behind and spending ten days surrounded by the beauty of New Brunswick’s Acadian Coast.

Ten artists will be selected: three Anglophone artists, three Francophone artists, and three Indigenous artists, as well as one jury’s choice. Artists of all disciplines are welcome to apply as long as their proposed work fits within the limitations of the setting (no ultra high-tech setups that need the internet and multiple plug ins).

The residency is a collaboration between ArtsLink NB, the Association acadienne des artistes professionel.le.s du Nouveau Brunswick (AAAPNB), and Mawi’Art: Wabanaki Artist Collective. Applications are open until Friday, February 26, 2021. 

For more information, and to apply, head to our website at www.artslinknb.com, Mawi’Art’s website at https://www.mawiart.org/ or to the aaapnb website at http://www.aaapnb.ca/.

The UNB Art Centre celebrates Black History Month

The UNB Art Centre celebrates Black History Month with a special project that brings portraits of Black New Brunswickers to the streets of Fredericton. In partnership with the UNB’s Bi-Campus Standing Committee on Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Human Rights and the City of Fredericton, banners featuring Black New Brunswickers will be displayed on Queen Street throughout the month of February. This project recognizes the achievements and experiences of Black New Brunswickers and their significant contribution to shaping contemporary New Brunswick.  

As part of this year’s celebration, we are listening to the voices of young black artists from the New Brunswick Black Artists Alliance in the UNB Art Centre’s online galleries.  Poets Chevelle Malcolm, Thandiwe McCarthy and Emmanuelle Jackson will perform works written by themselves as well as other black writers. 

This online exhibition also features Dr. Mary McCarthy reading and discussing the letter written by Mary Matilda Winslow to her classmates in 1954 for their 50th class reunion. Mary Matilda Winslow was the first black woman to graduate from UNB in 1905 and her letter chronicles her experience of racism as a black educator

Dr. Mary McCarthy is well known activist, writer, and educator who has worked tirelessly to restore and uncover New Brunswick’s Black histories and honour the community’s ancestors. Her research is focused primarily on forgotten and segregated graveyards across New Brunswick. In addition to her scholarship, McCarthy also served as the president of the New Brunswick Black History Society for six years. In 2015, McCarthy won a human rights case against Shoppers Drug Mart for an incident of racial profiling that occurred in 2011. McCarthy’s work is featured in the 2019 collection, Black Writers Matter, edited by Whitney French with a foreword by Afua Cooper. McCarthy holds a Bachelor of Arts in sociology from York University, two Master’s degrees from the University of New Brunswick, and is currently completing her Ph.D. in the department of Social Justice at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. When asked why she is so dedicated to preserving the histories of Black New Brunswickers, McCarthy stated, “I want my ancestors to be revered and respected. I have to tell their stories.” 

As well, throughout the month of February, the University of New Brunswick will present a number of informative films, lectures and events to highlight the historical and contemporary presence of Black Canadians in New Brunswick.  More information about these events can be found at www.unb.ca

The UNB Art Centre galleries at Memorial Hall on the UNB campus are currently closed for renovation until March 2021.  Please follow our exhibits and programs on-line.

THE UNB ART CENTRE PAYS TRIBUTE TO R.M. VAUGHAN

The UNB Art Centre presents its first exhibition of 2021 online with Cut.Paste.Resist.Redux which opens January 3-31, 2021 at https://www.unb.ca/cel/enrichment/art-centre/online-exhibits/index.html.

This exhibition reconfigures works sent in for a pop-up exhibition called Cut/Paste/Resist, co-created by UNB’s 2020 Writer-in-Residence R.M. Vaughan and Dr. Ken Moffatt, the Jack Layton Chair in Social Work at Ryerson University.  This exhibition was presented at UNB’s Student Union Building February 10-12 just before the COVID-19 pandemic forced a total shut down of the UNB campus.

According to R.M. Vaughan “In times of protest and social upheaval (and social rejuvenation) artists and activists turn to collage to make a point.” The call for submissions specifically stated that the project was open to everyone— artists and non-artists alike, using collage as a democratic medium “because collage is a fun accessible way to make art.”

As part of this tribute, The UNB Art Centre in collaboration with Dr. Ken Moffatt has invited friends of R.M. Vaughan to select a passage from one of his many works of poetry, prose and criticism.  These readings will be released on social media throughout the month of January as a way to honour R.M. Vaughan’s memory and to mark the tremendous loss to the cultural community of this gifted Canadian artist.

The UNB Art Centre is currently closed for renovations. Please follow our exhibits and programs on-line at  http://www.unb.ca/cel/enrichment/art-centre/index.html

One toy per thousand

Concept art project

One toy per thousand

Nicole Haché, artist

One Toy Per Thousand is a concept art project. A priori, a simple idea. A ball Christmas “Made in China”, toilet paper “Made in Canada”, New Brunswick and a title inspired by the lyrics of the songPetit Papa NoĂ«l . This project took form in order to immortalize the year 2020 while stimulating reflection on social behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The ball, coming from China, makes a link with the city of Wuhan where the disease was detected for the first time in November 2019. Here, a reflection is necessary in front of the massive importation of goods, which arrive from this country per thousand. 

At the start of the pandemic, the behavior towards the purchase of toilet paper and the feeling of security that goes with it provokes questions. The transparency of the ball acts as a reference to an object that can be broken in an emergency (“In case of emergency”), often associated with red. 

A Christmas ball with a message and a nod to the scarcity of toilet paper in March 2020.The balls will be on sale at Librairie PĂ©lagie in Caraquet and Shippagan as well as at CafĂ©-Boutique Aloha in LamĂšque on Monday. Since it’s the year 2020, $ 20 (+ HST) each. They are signed and numbered.
I can’t wait to see who will be interested in this item ….
You can follow the progress of the project on the artist’s professional page in the album A toy per thousand
