Fresh AIR: NB Outdoor Artists in Residence

Artist-in-residence program returns this summer

The Fresh AIR (artist-in-residence) program will return for the 2021 summer season through a collaboration between the provincial government and the New Brunswick Arts Board, also known as artsnb.

The program will support 10 artists as they engage with the public and develop their artistic practice or existing projects over five days at a New Brunswick provincial park or tourism site.

“Last year’s launch of this program was an incredible success and we are happy to be able to expand it to even more locations this summer,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott Wallace. “This is one of the many ways we are supporting our province’s artistic community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The 2021 Fresh AIR program will expand from five to 10 locations this year: Mactaquac, Herring Cove, Hopewell Rocks, Fundy Trail Parkway, Parlee Beach, Miscou Lighthouse, Village Historique Acadien, Sugarloaf, Jardin botanique du Nouveau-Brunswick, and Mount Carleton.

“For artsnb, the Fresh AIR program offer a double springboard: it allows our professional artists to meet new audiences in extraordinary contexts,” said Alain Boisvert, chairperson of the New Brunswick Arts Board. “This partnership brings new meaning to the accessibility of the general public to the exceptional works of professional New Brunswick artists.”

Selected participants will be offered an artist fee for participating in the residency and complimentary accommodations at their chosen site, if applicable.

“This program will provide opportunities for professional artists to express themselves, gain exposure and enhance their work portfolio,” said Scott-Wallace. “It will also offer New Brunswickers a better appreciation of culture and the arts while showcasing our artists and their creative process.”

The program will take place from June 23 to Aug. 29 and is open to all New Brunswick professional artists. Selected artists will choose their preferred location and submit an application, which will be reviewed by a selection committee.

The deadline to apply is April 23. The application and more information are available online.

Call for applications – Cross-Cultural Creation Residency

Cross-Cultural Creation Residency

A francophone artist

An anglophone artist

An indigenous artist

The Association acadienne des artistes professionnel.le.s du Nouveau-Brunswick (AAAPNB), ArtsLink NB and Mawi’Art: Wabanaki Artist Collective, join forces again for the second Cross-cultural creation residency. A community residency between an acadian artist, an anglophone artist, and an indigenous artist in New Brunswick. 

This year’s program will take place in two week-long stages, in different NB communities. Through this residency, artists will have the opportunity to create new work while immersing themselves in the artistic process of fellow artists. 

The experience of being in another community and creating with people of different artistic backgrounds allows one to go beyond language barriers and discover different cultural environments. Recognizing current debates surrounding cultural and language tensions in New Brunswick, this initiative demonstrates that it is possible to grow by combining strengths rather than advocating division. Art in itself is a means of expression and cohesion and makes it possible to break down the boundaries that all too often isolate us.



  • To encourage the artistic exploration and the production of new works by providing space and time
  • To contribute to increasing the artistic quality of the work
  • To favour the collaboration and the sharing of expertise and experiences
  • To create significant cultural bridges of different cultural communities in the province.
  • To provoke encounters between artists and the public and to help raise awareness of the creative process.

The work in progress must be presented publicly at the end of each week. The artists will have complete freedom of creation, but will be called upon to open their creation space to allow the community to discover their work through open-studio visits. 


  1. Provide their own working materials
  2. Interacting with the participating artists 
  3. Present publicly the work in progress at the end of each week in the form of an exchange with the public.
  4. Submit a final report to the AAAPNB, ArtsLink and Mawi’Art 30 days after the end of the residency. 


  1. This project is open to emerging and professional artists of all disciplines.
  2. This project is open to Acadian artists who are members of the Acadian Association of Professional Artists of New Brunswick, ArtsLink artists and Aboriginal artists.


  1. Artists must register using the form and answer all questions. A detailed description of the creation project is mandatory (minimum 500 words).
  2. Artists must submit, in addition to the completed form, their artistic approach and an updated curriculum vitae. 
  3. The artists must be available for the duration of the residency, from March  15 to 28, 2020.


The applications will be examined by a jury of peers. The main qualities sought are:

  1. Feasibility of the proposed project;
  2. Artistic merits and originality of the artistic approach;
  3. The potential impact of the project on the career of the artist.


Deadline to submit: Feb. 12, 2020

The candidates will get a reply before Feb. 19, 2020.


  • A fee of $ 2,000
  • Reimbursement for moving from the artists’ residence to the places of the residences (beyond 50 km)
  • Accommodation
  • Per diem of food 
  • Creative premises

Space & Time Artist Residency at Guttenberg Arts (Winter & Summer 2019 Programs)

Event History

Since 2014 Guttenberg Arts has hosted thirty-three exhibitions, forty-two Artists in Residence, thirty-two artist talks, twenty-two free workshops, two panels and has awarded over $100,000.00 cash-in-hands stipends to both artists and arts professionals. Guttenberg Arts has partnered with over a dozen other arts non-profits and community groups and is growing to serve more artists and community members for the decades to come.

What Makes this event different?

Guttenberg Arts supports artists from diverse cultural, sexual, and ethnic backgrounds. Guttenberg Arts does not discriminate based on gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, or ability/disability of artists. Guttenberg Arts welcomes artwork whose content reflects the lived experiences of the applicants.

The Space and Time Artist Residency at Guttenberg Arts provides artists with a $1,200.00 USD stipend. The stipend is for material, travel, and housing in conjunction with 24/7 shared access to a 4,500 sq. ft. professionally equipped workspace for the visual arts that includes printmaking, darkroom and ceramics facilities for three months in Guttenberg, New Jersey (just across the Hudson River).

At the end of the residency, artists are given a group show, as well as studio visits from accomplished professionals from the art world. Each participating artist resident is required to give a free public artist lecture or workshop towards the close of their three-month residency and they are required to spend a minimum of 15 hours a week in the studio. We highly recommend a site visit to our building if you are at all unsure of your commute or have questions regarding our facilities. Artists are selected by a blind jury of arts professionals on the merits of their work.

Guttenberg Arts is dedicated to promoting the visual arts by providing practicing artists with the time and space to develop their work while engaging with the public.  Guttenberg Arts intends to increase opportunities for supported artists by expanding their community through artistic collaborations and promotion to curators and collectors in the tri-state area.

Ottawa School of Art

Brief description of the organization

In 1879 by a group of prominent local citizens under the patronage of the Governor General, the Marquis of Lorne and his wife, Princess Louise founded the Ottawa Art Association. The Association was determined to open as a school of art and design in the capital. Classes began in April of 1880 with 18 students enrolled in the Ottawa Art School as it was then called. Over the next 100 years, there were many changes and transitions to the school and its community, but the school survived and emerged from the war years as the Ottawa Municipal Art Centre. In 1976 the school was reorganized under its present name and in 1983 it moved into its present location in the By Ward Market district in Ottawa. In 2009 the school expanded with a second campus being added in the Shenkman Arts Centre in Orleans.

A brief description of the residency program

The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) established an artist residency program during its 135th anniversary. The residency program is located solely in the ByWard Market campus in downtown Ottawa. OSA has opened its specialized studios there for ceramics, printmaking & sculpture for use by resident artists during the schools regular hours of operation. OSA will accept a maximum of 2 artists per studio at any time during the year. We suggest that the minimum residency time should be no less than 2 weeks. There is no official maximum length of time – this will be worked out with each resident artist.

OSA will provide:
• Set periods of free studio time in the specialized studio of choice.
• Basic general studio supplies (e.g. acids and solvents in the print studio, etc.)
• Assistance to any resident artists (letters of support/invitation, etc.)
• Wireless internet access at OSA
• OSA will provide information on various forms of accommodations (e.g. self-catering apartments, university residences, etc.) and will negotiate reasonable rates for the artists.
• A reception and exhibition in the Lee Matasi Gallery of work done during the pilot project.
• A professional training session for resident artists offered by CARFAC
• Guest passes to the National Gallery of Canada and other national museums when possible

Mentoring Artists for Women´s Art

A brief description of the organization

Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA)

Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art (MAWA) was founded in 1984 to encourage the intellectual and creative development of women in the visual arts by providing a forum for education and critical dialogue. Mentorship is the core activity of the organization.

Senior women visual artists are paired with emerging women visual artists for one-on-one peer-based training and support. This model of art education has proven to be nothing short of transformative, and many women artists in the province have credited MAWA with enriching their professional practices by providing: essential critical feedback on their work at key times in their development; professional skills development necessary for their survival as artists; entitlement and empowerment within the larger art world; and inclusion in the local visual art community. Since our inception, we have provided mentorships for hundreds of women artists in our year-long Foundation Mentorship Program. We partner with different arts organizations each year to add an additional Mentor, to open this program to expanded communities. For example, we have included mentors and mentees from La maison des artistes (Francophone artists), Urban Shaman Gallery (Aboriginal curators) and the Manitoba Crafts Council (craft-based artists).

MAWA also operates other, shorter-term mentorship opportunities such as week-long Master Classes, and three-week mini-mentorships on a specific theme or medium (mini-mentorships take place in Winnipeg and rurally). To celebrate our 25th anniversary in 2009, we conducted an 18-month Curatorial Mentorship Program. Since 2009, MAWA has programmed six-month rural mentorships in a different region of Manitoba each year, often in collaboration with Manitoba Arts Network. We have expanded our reach by integrating Aboriginal Mentors and guest artists into all our existing programs, and by developing the New Canadian Artisan Project, begun in 2011.

Over the years, MAWA has sponsored numerous special projects including Passing Pictures with Prisoners (1998), which developed into the independent organization, Crossing Communities Art Project. Every few years we host a major symposium, such as the recent Art Building Community Symposium (2008) and Sculptural Vocabularies Symposium (2011, in collaboration with the Winnipeg Art Gallery). In 1999, MAWA initiated a 3-day curatorial residency that tabled the LaSalle River Agreement, a recommended fee schedule for independent curators nationally. MAWA has also produced exhibitions including Grrls, Chicks, Sisters & Squaws: Les Citoyennes de la Web (2006), curated by Skawennati Tricia Fragnito, and publications including Technologies of Intuition (2006).

As well as mentorships and special projects, MAWA hosts local artist talks, skills-based workshops, professional practices workshops, critical reading groups, an artist-mothers group, screenings and field trips. Recently, lectures by visiting artists and curators have been presented by Lucy Lippard (Albuquerque, New Mexico), Deborah Kelly (Sydney, Australia), Sara Riel (Reykjavik, Iceland), Rosalie Favell (Ottawa), Allyson Mitchell (Toronto), Yolanda Paulsen (Mexico City) and Minerva Cuevas (Mexico City). We provide a platform for critical writing as well, by commissioning text that appears in our newsletter and on our website.

Although many of our mentorship programs are for women artists, recognizing historical and present-day inequalities, the majority of our programs are open to people of all genders and are offered at low or no cost.

MAWA has over 300 paid members, of whom approximately 80% reside in Winnipeg. An additional 10% are located throughout Manitoba and an additional 10% throughout the rest of Canada. Well over 400 volunteers contribute to MAWA each year.

For more than a quarter century, we have assisted artists at all stages of their careers, fostering professional and artistic development. We have actively impacted and enriched the professional arts community in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and beyond. MAWA continues to innovate (upcoming programs include virtual mentorships!); MAWA continues to grow; MAWA continues to be a site for art discourse, dialogue and community building by providing inspiring, high-quality programming.
