Plain Site Theatre Festival: Call for Submissions 🐓

4th Annual Plain Site Theatre Festival
Although we just wrapped up our 3rd Annual Fest in March 2022, delayed from 2021 because of Covid 19,  we have decided to move back to our usual Fall slot for the 4th Annual, which we’ll call ‘2022 Part 2 Electric Boogaloo’.  Double the Plain Site, double the fun!  And so we are thrilled to announce the 4th Annual Plain Site Theatre Festival, CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS.
As the festival grows it is always so heartwarming to see new connections being formed between students and community members. With this in mind, the theme for this year’s playwriting contest will be the question ‘How do we make connections?’ A community cannot thrive without strong connections and so we encourage playwrights to reflect on how we build strong connections with others as the catalyst for this year’s submissions.

  • Submissions will only be accepted from artists attending a secondary or post-secondary institution in New Brunswick and who identify as 2SLGBTQIA+.

  • Scripts must contain no more than 2 actors. (Monologues are welcome)
  • Playwrights must be available to work on their script with a dramaturg between August and September 2022.
  • A maximum of 4 plays will be selected for the festival.
*The Plain Site Festival reserves the right to award fewer than the maximum number of plays allotted should jury members feel that the quality of submissions does not meet a minimum standard or that the festival would not be able to stage certain submitted scripts for logistical, financial, or legal reasons.
**The Plain Site Theatre Festival acknowledges that for 2SLGBTQIA+ students, public presentation of their identities may put them in a position of risk. Writers and performers are featured on social media posts and may be featured in related promotion of the festival (ie, press releases, featured in articles in news publications, etc) If you are not comfortable having a public presence with the festival please reach out with your situation so that we can best accommodate you while keeping your safety in mind.

BIPOC Animator Film Commission and Mentoring at the Animation Festival of Halifax 🎞

The Animation Festival of Halifax (AFX) takes place in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded and ancestral
territory of the Mi’kmaq. We are all Treaty People who are responsible for enacting peace and
friendship in this magnificent land.

Animation Festival of Halifax

Are you an aspiring, new, or emerging Black, Indigenous, and/or Person of Colour (BIPOC)
animator based in Mi’kma’ki? AFX will mentor a BIPOC animator through the creation of a very
short animated film (under two minutes) between June 2022 and April 2023, and we will
feature the film and artist at the festival in May of 2023. The deadline for applications is 30 May
2022.

This program aims to nurture the talent and career of a BIPOC animator and spark conversation
about race and ethnicity in the field of animation. The successful applicant will be selected
partly for “fit” with AFX’s key values of inclusiveness, positivity, and sincerity, but you will have
creative freedom (choice of topic, technique, etc.) within the film itself. Although your film
doesn’t need to address issues of race, ethnicity, inequity, and diversity (although it certainly
can), you do need to be willing to talk at the festival about both your artistic vision and your
experiences as a BIPOC artist.

The successful applicant will:

  • Receive a $3000 artist’s fee ($1500 at the beginning of the project and $1500 upon
    completion of the film for the festival)
  • Have a budget of $2000 for filmmaking costs (e.g., equipment rental, software purchase,
    fees for sound designer)
  • Have monthly meetings with mentors to support your project development and career.
    The mentors will include educators and prominent members of the field of animation,
    and we will do our best to match you up with mentors who can address your specific
    questions or goals.
  • Give an informal presentation of your work in progress in the winter of 2023 (speaker’s
    fee of $350) and introduce your film and talk about it during a Q&A during the festival
    (speaker’s fee of $350). The festival event will be recorded and posted to our website.
  • Receive screening fees for screenings during the festival, and also on the festival’s
    website starting two years after the AFX presentation. You will retain copyright, and we
    will pay rates set by the Canadian Artists’ Representation/Le Front des artistes
    canadiens (CARFAC) for moving images on the internet for 5 years. Between the festival
    and posting the film to our website, you’ll be welcome to submit it to other festivals.

This project is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada.
Applications should be emailed to animationhalifax@gmail.com, and should answer these
questions in whatever format you prefer:

  1. Where are you based/where do you live most of the time? You need to be based in
    Mi’kma’ki/the Atlantic Provinces to be eligible for this program.
  2. What is your experience/background in animation and/or related fields such as
    illustration, live-action filmmaking, etc.? This can include projects you have done
    professionally, or for a high school class or community course, or on your own. Please
    send us links or files for your past projects.
  3. What are your ambitions in animation? For example, do you want to work in a
    commercial studio? Do you want to go to art school and become an independent
    animator (or have you already done so)? Do you want to make animated music videos?
    Become a YouTube influencer as an animator? Something else? Our festival team
    includes people working in both commercial and independent animation, and we
    welcome applicants with a range of interests and ambitions.
  4. In about one paragraph, describe the film you’d like to make through the program.
    Please tell us what the story/subject matter would be and describe how it would
    look/feel. If you already know, please tell us how you would accomplish it (animation
    technique, software/equipment, etc.). Feel free to include images by you or examples
    by other people that are similar to what you’d like to do, but this is not required.
  5. Are you willing to speak in public about your experiences as an artist who is Black,
    Indigenous, and/or a Person of Colour? You can approach this question any way you
    like, such as discussing barriers you and/or your community have faced or inspirations
    that have informed your work. You are welcome but not required to share thoughts
    about this in this application.

If you are a more experienced animator, because of the program’s emphasis on mentorship, we
encourage you to apply to develop a new skill that you have not had a chance to explore
previously.

For more information about the Animation Festival of Halifax, please visit our website, Facebook page, or the Twitter
account of Carbon Arc Cinema, which presents the festival.

And if you have any questions, just drop us a line at animationhalifax@gmail.com.

Artist Soliciting Images for Community Portrait 📸

Prince Edward Island based multi-disciplinary artist, Damien Worth is currently developing an interactive portrait of Fredericton for his upcoming exhibit at the UNB Art Centre in September.

Using video-game technology (Unity3d), Worth builds surreal landscapes that are textured with images solicited from the public. “This will be the fourth iteration of the project; I’ve already completed projects for Charlottetown (PEI), St. John’s (NL), and Sydney (NS). I’m interested in how we navigate spaces, how sites transform over time, and memory as it relates to personal identities” Worth notes.

Worth is looking for all types of imagery related to personal experience and locations surrounding the various identities of Fredericton. “I’m hoping to get a good range of subject matter, everything from locations of prominence to dingy late-night party scenes or back alleys. I’m also hoping to get some sound clips or 3d models.”

Worth is looking for interested participants to submit one or two images, sound clips, or 3d models to him no later than July 20th. The materials can be sent via email (damworth@hotmail.com) or via social media @damworth78. No advertising or offensive subject matter will be accepted.

The UNB Art Centre is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton.  The galleries are open 9 am – 4 pm on weekdays and during special events. Admission is free to members of the public.

Call for Submissions for Art Exhibition Programming

Again this year, the three Francophone school-community centres of NB are joining together to make a joint call for tenders in order to solicit visual artists from the province to come and exhibit in the art galleries of their respective centres.
All three centres operate a non-commercial community gallery and are willing to pay a fee to artists according to the 2022/2023 CARFAC rate. The attached document will give you all the details to submit your application (deadline – June 2, 2022).

This call for tenders is for the next year of programming which will begin in September 2022.

Please share this notice with anyone you know who might be interested in exhibiting in Miramichi, Fredericton, or Saint John.

Regart Amplitude: Open Call for Artists and Independent Curators

Deadline : Midnight, May 22. 2022
Artistic orientation 2023-2024

Amplitude. To expand ? Overflow ? Contain more ?


Amplitude is to encourage the overflow, the generous, the abundant. To feel the vibrant presence of a work, whether material or immaterial. Amplitude can consist of a diversity of strategies, sensibilities, subjects, choices, research, a complexity of assemblies, an overdose of gestures, actions, up-cycling, volumes, textures, shapes, mediums, and compositions.

A new era for Regart, with new programming in new spaces.  We are looking for proposals developed specifically to inhabit the space of the gallery. It is also possible to present works and projects already in circulation but adapted to the specificities of our space.

Regart, centre d’artistes en art actuel, was established in Lévis in 1986, Regart, a contemporary artist’ center, ensures the dynamic presence of the visual arts for the public of Chaudière-Appalaches and Québec City.

In the gallery and in public space, the Regart program highlights works that reflect the hybridization and experiment in which artistic quality and the importance of theory are shown off. The Centre favours innovative projects, research and exchanges aiming at being an open venue, a field of possibilities in which discussion with artists and mediation with the public are fundamental.

Gallery applications must be submitted before midnight on May 22, 2022. Email and paper applications won’t be accepted, only via the form at this link.
