Connexion Artist-Run Centre is now accepting proposals for ISOLATION PROJECTS. We are looking for artists to create content from their homes that can be disseminated online or through alternative physically-distant means, and to share their practices & working methods with the community. Projects may include:

– Digital “residencies” & social media takeovers
– Live streams of media or performance works
– Digital workshops or artist talks
– Creation & documentation of sculpture/installation works on your own property*

* While current physical distancing measures are in place, we will accept proposals for installations made on public-facing properties, but will not publicize their locations or encourage people to attend, other than those already passing by for essential outings. Documentation of the project will not be shared on our social media platforms until the work has been taken down.

Artists working in any media across Canada, with preference given to members of Connexion ARC and artists working in New Brunswick/Atlantic Canada.

To apply:
Please contact info@connexionarc.org with the following materials or to or request a meeting to talk about your project.

– A short project description that addresses the following:
What is your project? Which platform will you use? (I.e. stand-alone website, Instagram, Facebook Live, Zoom, physical artwork with documentation or printed materials to be disseminated at a later date.) How will you execute the project while respecting current best practices in physical distancing?
– Artist statement and/or bio
– Samples of work: up to 10 images and/or 10 minutes of video/audio
– Optional: CV, social media links, or other materials relevant to your project.

Ongoing. First selections will be made from proposals received by 5pm Wednesday, April 22.

Projects will be reviewed by a committee of Connexion ARC staff & board members. Proposals will be evaluated based on their alignment with our mandate, and feasibility/social responsibility under current distancing regulations.

Connexion ARC is able to offer an honorarium of $200 per project.
Note: we are aware that this does not reflect CARFAC’s minimum recommended project fee. We do not wish to take advantage of artists during this time of need, but rather have made funds available quickly to provide a bit of immediate support in these unexpected circumstances.

Please contact info@connexionarc.org with any questions or assistance with your submission.
