The Friends of Fundy is seeking proposals for the upcoming exhibition Seafaring, which will be installed at the Molly Kool Center in Fundy National Park from August 3 to 25, 2022. Proposals Due Thursday, June 30th 2022, 11:59 PM AST.

Seafaring seeks to frame the organization’s programming mission to explore the local environment and community’s relationship to climate, rurality, and artistic practices. Drawing inspiration from the site’s storied past as the former home of North America’s first female sea Captain, the exhibition will explore knowledge shared through making, the cyclical nature of rural life, and gender representation in industry.

Call for submissions: Seafaring. For emerging artists. Proposals due Thursday June 30th, 11:59pm AST. Image of the beach at Alma.

This is an opportunity for self-identified emerging artists with connections to the Bay of Fundy region. We encourage proposals from members of all equity-seeking groups.

The call is open to new and existing work in any media, however access to power is limited.

Selected artists will be paid standard CARFAC fees.
All applicants will be contacted July 4th, regardless of acceptance status.

We acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we operate and this work will be presented. The Bay of Fundy is the ancestral and unceded territory of the Wabanaki People, covered by the Covenant Chain of Sacred Peace and Friendship Treaties first signed with settlers in 1725, and affirmed by Section 35 of the Canada Constitution. We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to live, learn, and create in this beautiful place.

The Friends of Fundy is grateful for the support of Canadian Heritage, the Village of Alma, and Mount Allison Careers in the development of this project.

The submission form is here.
