The Musée acadien de l’Université de Moncton (MAUM) is pleased to announce the 25th anniversary of its educational program. The program, offered in both official languages, began 25 years ago thanks to the MAUM’s rich collection and a desire to offer workshops in New Brunswick schools. Today, the program continues to engage schools in the province and neighboring communities.
Over the years, the educational program has offered a great variety of workshops based on historic objects and has constantly evolved in order to keep up with the educational demands in curriculum and the importance of different acadien based themes taught in class. During its 25 years of programming, the MAUM has searched out and created partnerships and collaborations to facilitate teaching, to enrich its programs and to create stronger ties with the community. Among its numerous relationships with teachers, members of the community and diverse organizations, the Musée acadien has been able to broaden its capacities to create meaningful projects, especially with youths, such as multimedia activities and exhibition creation.
To celebrate the educational program’s 25th anniversary, the MAUM would like to announce some new educational elements, such as resource sheets, a virtual educational workshop and a new blog series.
Resource Sheets: The Musée acadien has developed educational resource sheets touching on different themes, events and characters from Acadian culture and history. This project enables teachers and educators to freely and instantly access resources and information traditionally offered through guided tours and in person workshops. These resource sheets are available by visiting the MAUM’s Website at https://www.umoncton.ca/umcm-maum/node/34. Resource sheets are currently only offered in French.
Virtual Educational Workshop: For back to school 2020, the MAUM presents a new educational workshop all about food in Acadie. This workshop is offered virtually and can be explored at your pace via a PowerPoint document. Just like all other workshops offered by the Musée acadien, it is based on objects from the collection and supplemented by information, videos, photographs and audio recordings. For more information and associated costs, please call (506) 858-4088 or email email@example.com.
Blog Series: To further diversify our current educational blog series “Côté education”, the MAUM is happy to announce its miniseries “Côté education: Selon les expertes et les experts”. This miniseries is looking to breach the gap between museum education and schools by collaborating with experts in the field of education, such as teachers and community coordinators. Each blog post in this series presents answers from experts based on questions the Musée acadien has asked them related to museums and schools and the relation between the two. Stay tuned for this miniseries in the coming weeks on our blog. Most blog posts from this series will be in French.
The Musée acadien is always on the lookout for new educational program themes and ideas for presentations in the community, so please do not hesitate to share your project ideas with us. Do you have any unanswered questions about Acadian history? We love a challenge! If you are in search of a specific object, a class presentation, or some partnership opportunities, let us know and it would be our pleasure to discuss with you. Our workshops and projects are also adaptable to the needs of the community at large, such as community centers and for senior citizens.
The MAUM is supported by the City of Moncton and the Province of New Brunswick. In addition, we would like to thank the professors of Université de Moncton, who over the years have advised and collaborated with us and validated our research related to the schools’ curriculums.

The Owens is excited to welcome Hannah Bridger to the team as the Colville House Curatorial Intern.
Hannah will work closely with Emily Falvey, Director/Curator, and the rest of the Owens’ team, to assist with the administration and delivery of programming linked to Colville House. A small house museum located in the historic home of one of Canada’s best-known visual artists, Colville House is a place to explore the life and work of renowned magic realist painter Alex Colville.
Hannah looks forward to this internship as an opportunity to do new research and find creative ways to expand Colville House’s public programming while also building her curatorial CV. Originally from Charlottetown, PEI, Hannah graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Mount Allison University in 2020 with a focus in sculpture. During the internship, Hannah will develop her curatorial writing skills, assist with publication coordination, and work with the Colville House Fellow to develop exhibitions and other programing.
Hannah enjoys the kind of “creative problem-solving involved in rethinking how these galleries usually function, so that people can still have a meaningful engagement with the work whether they’re viewing it in person or online.”
The Colville House Curatorial Internship is funded through the Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations and the generous philanthropic support of Mount Allison University alumni Heather and Ian Bourne.
Since 2002, the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation has offered an award for an emerging artist in the fields of fine craft and design. It continues to be a mark of distinction for New Brunswick artisans. The 2020 recipient of the Nel Oudemans Award is Kristen Bishop. Based on the recommendation of an independent jury, Ms. Bishop will receive the $2,000 award in recognition of her accomplishments in the early stages of her career.
Kristen Bishop’s artistic practice has been marked by the honing of traditional metalsmithing techniques as well as an exploratory spirit. She is noted as an artist who pushes boundaries to explore the creative possibilities. Bishop has earned the respect of her peers, building a body of work that has been featured in juried and invitational group exhibitions. She is an active member of the New Brunswick arts community, poised to excel in a professional career.
The Board of Directors acknowledges the support of jurors Cathy Ross, Sarah Brinkhurst and Theresa Macknight in the 2020 jury process.
Contemporary art mediation, such as education and outreach, are an important part of the Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen’s activities. Over a number of years, these have expanded and taken on various forms, often conceived specifically for a group and in conjunction with the gallery’s artistic programming. Alisa Arsenault, mediation coordinator, actively develops specific projects that contribute to a wide range of individuals being able to engage with exhibitions, while also responding to requests from community groups and schools.
The online resource centre, J’explore, je crée, was created to offer free tools that are developed from the contemporary art mediation programming. These bilingual online resources present aspects of contemporary art and can be used to organize creative activities for oneself or a group. These resources can be found at: www.umoncton.ca/jecree
Contemporary art mediation activities are supported by a Cultural Grant from the City of Moncton. The Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen is funded by the Canada Council for the Arts and the Province of New Brunswick.
Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen
La médiation en art contemporain est un volet d’activité importante à la Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen. Depuis quelques années, celle-ci prend de l’expansion et se manifeste par une variété plus grande d’initiatives, souvent conçues sur mesure pour un groupe particulier et en conjonction avec la programmation artistique. Alisa Arsenault, responsable de la médiation, développe des projets spécifiques afin de faire participer un éventail d’individus aux expositions, mais répond aussi aux demandes de la communauté et du milieu scolaire.
C’est ainsi que la GALRC lance le projet J’explore, je crée! afin de fournir gratuitement des ressources en ligne qui sont développées à partir de programmes de médiation. Ces ressources bilingues feront découvrir des aspects de l’art contemporain et permettront d’organiser pour soi ou en groupe des activités de création. Le point de chute des ressources diverses se trouve au www.umoncton.ca/jecree.
La programmation d’activités de médiation est soutenue en particulier par une Subvention culturelle de la Ville de Moncton. La Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen est aussi appuyée par le Conseil des arts du Canada et la Province du Nouveau-Brunswick.
Launch of project Isolated//Together
Date: September 28, 2020, 11AM
Location: Atlantic Ballet Studio, 68 Highfield Street, Moncton NB
Led by Atlantic Ballet Atlantique Canada in collaboration with Harrison Burton of Brainworks Creative, ISOLATED//TOGETHER is a multidisciplinary project documenting the COVID-19 experience In New Brunswick through dance, film, music, spoken word, photography and visual arts. Partners include the Beaverbrook Gallery and 14 visual artists from across the province, Theatre New Brunswick, photographer Denis Duquette, composer/musician Elephant Skeletons and 14 dancers from Atlantic Ballet, Connection Dance Works (Saint John) and Solo Chicken Productions (Fredericton) as well as Wolastoq performance artist Nipahtuwet Naka Wespahtuwet Possesom.
Join public officials, artists and representatives from each organization to hear details and have a sneak peak behind the scenes.
From Atlantic Ballet: The creative imagination of Artistic Director Igor Dobrovolskiy will be creating 9 of the 14 dance solos for the dancers of Atlantic Ballet. In collaboration with other choreographers and dancers from Connection Dance Works, Solo Chicken Productions and Possesom Paul, Atlantic Ballet, along with videographer Harrison Burton and with a soundscape created by St-John multi-instrumentalist Clifford J. Doucette aka Elephant Skeleton, will be joining forces at the Capitol to create a unique visual experience for the audience to watch in the future.
From the Beaverbrook Art Gallery: Masks will be part of our culture for the foreseeable future. In this new project, we invited artists to submit designs for a wearable facemask that commemorates the masks we are wearing and their related social constraints, as we navigate the challenges of a pandemic. Fourteen artists were chosen to create masks using any medium that will be exhibited in a virtual showcase, three gallery exhibitions, and will be worn by dancers for post pandemic performances.
Visual artists who created masks from across the province
From TNB: We will gather the stories of New Brunswickers in isolation and staying at home about how isolation makes them feel via Zoom or Skype. This could be good or bad experiences. These stories will represent our entire community and include stories of newcomers in their own language. We will work through the Multi-cultural associations across NB to gather names. Stories will be gathered and curated into audio that can be sorted by language. The audio can be overlaid and listened to while watching the dance films or simply stand alone as the stories of New Brunswickers during the pandemic.
From Brainworks: Living in this historic period of time, we’re able to relate to these performers and what they’re going through. Our ultimate goal is to one day revisit these locations when they’re bustling with life so the dancers can perform again. We want to take the public on a journey throughout New Brunswick while you experience isolation through dance.
