January 12, 2021 – Music·Musique NB is launching a new pilot project aimed at Indigenous musicians. The initiative, sponsored by Mi’kmaq Hip Hop artist Wolf Castle, was created to provide one emerging Indigenous artist from New Brunswick with the tools, support and guidance to achieve a new musical project.
“We need more Indigenous voices and more spaces where these voices can be heard,” says artist Wolf Castle. “This pilot project sets the stage to give young Indigenous artists a chance to get in the spotlight.”
One recipient will be chosen by an all-indigenous jury and will receive a $3000 grant to complete a music-based project. Projects can include, but are not limited to, recording a music video, developing online content, creating a sound recording, and expanding musical skills. The artist will also receive mentorship and support to help them achieve their artistic and professional goals and aspirations.
Artists can propose a project before January 29.
The Association of Francophone Visual Arts Groups ( AGAVF ) presents the events of its members, namely fifteen artist-run centers and galleries across Canada, and compiles calls for submissions in visual arts, media arts, performance, public art, residencies aimed at artists and curators.
