  • Share the artsUNITE/UNITÉ des arts website and your participation in the Unmute: Virtual Artist Residency on your relevant social media platforms.
  • Attend or participate in other launch events (details to be confirmed closer to launch date).

Artists-in-Residence will be provided with:

  • Artist Fee of $500.00.
  • Free access to creative workshops during the residency.
  • Opportunities to collaborate with artists across the country.
  • Professional Development and 1-on-1 mentorship with a carefully selected mentor.
  • An opportunity to be part of discussions on creative approaches to artistic tools, professional practice, and resources.
  • A national platform to showcase your work.

This residency aims to prioritize emerging and early-career Canadian-based artists working in:

media or film, performing arts (theatre/dance), literature, visual arts, music, and multi-disciplinary art who are interested in participating in a virtual residency during the month of March.

Program components will be offered primarily in English, with translation and ASL services available as needed to support the participation of a diverse community of artists. Applicants must be a Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident currently based in Canada to qualify for this opportunity.

Charlotte County Archives launches new website to provide rich gem of online resources

St. Andrews, NB —The Charlotte County Archives (CCA), located in St. Andrews, has just launched an
exciting new website and has adopted a vibrant new look and feel. These initiatives will help citizens
around the province, and beyond, access new digital files and photos with the click of a button.
Board Chair Franklin Cardy says of these developments, “We have been working towards making our
holdings accessible to the public over the past year and our new website is the culmination of that work.
Increasingly, people want to be able to view documents online, either for research purposes, to discover
more about their roots, or to learn more about our rich history. And during this pandemic it is safer and
easier for people to learn more through online searches.”

The initial funding for the website was a $5,000 grant from the Provincial Department of Tourism,
Heritage and Culture — Museum Services. This Digital World and Social Media grant enabled CCA to
contract the services of Loyalist City Web Design to create a beautiful and functional new website,
where you can see what collections CCA has in its environmentally protected vault. You can read lists of
church records, microfilm, and library holdings. You can also read about items of genealogical interest
and see a myriad of archival photos. https://ccarchives.ca/

A second grant, from Young Canada Works, is funding an internship focused on the creation of a digital
vault for the storage of digitized documents. This will provide guidelines for accessioning, and training
for community partners on how to collect and index holdings. Keith MacKnight has been hired as the
intern and, working with Archives Manager Heather Wilson and Board members, he will showcase the
digital resources of the Archives. Hundreds of new digitized records and 25,000 digitized photos show
the readiness of the CCA to further adapt to COVID-19 protocols.

Graphic designer Elaine Wilson, working with the Archives positioning committee, has designed the
strong new logo, which appears on the new website and will be used in future communications and
signage.

In February, CCA hosted a Heritage Fair at the Garcelon Centre, where like-minded archival and historic
community groups encouraged the Archives to become a hub for all such groups in the County. A new
listing on the CCA web site will unite these groups in a shared goal of preserving the past, including
events happening as recently as yesterday. The Charlotte County Archives encourages people to label
their own digital photos clearly for future users and invites citizens from Charlotte County to consider
sending items of historic interest to the Archives for careful preservation.

This program is for artists seeking peer feedback, community building, and an opportunity to collaborate with an established artist you admire. Mentor artists will be approached after mentees are selected to ensure the best possible opportunity and fit for both parties.

Connexion ARC is calling on early/mid-career artists in New Brunswick to apply to Connexion ARC for this program by February 26, 2021.

To apply send a letter of interest, CV, and up to 10 images of your work to info@connexionarc.org.

Acknowledgments
Connexion ARC respectfully acknowledges the land on which we operate as the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples. This teArritory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.

WE WOULD LIKE YOUR INPUT!

We need your input to complete our programming! If you are a visual artist based in Atlantic Canada, please take our survey to let us know what digital platforms and tools you are currently using, and what aspects of online strategies you find difficult or daunting. Your feedback will help us to ensure that we are best addressing your digital challenges.

Please note that the deadline for the Artist-in-Residence Program is February 1st, 2021.

The Artist-in-Residence Program is intended for New Brunswick public or private institutions and organizations that wish to host professional artists to enable them to pursue specific projects relating to their creative work. The invited artists may reside in New Brunswick or outside the province. This program is also open to individual professionals who seek to advance their creative work through participation in long-term (3 months or more) residency opportunities at home or outside the province. The artists in residence are to contribute to the promotion and understanding of the arts by means of the artists’ contact with the clientele of the establishments.

We strongly encourage you to apply as soon as possible for this program; your participation in this program fosters the development of arts throughout the province!

Charlotte County Archives puts funding from the Council of Archives New Brunswick to strategic use

News Release
December 18, 2020

Charlotte County Archives puts funding from the Council of Archives New Brunswick to strategic use
St. Andrews, NB — Matt Honey, Archives Manager at the Charlotte County Archives (CCA), recently
secured funding from the Council of Archives New Brunswick (CANB) for three very significant projects.
Each project will help fulfil the mission of the Archives — to collect, preserve and conserve, through
archival best practices, the pre-eminent collection of significant documents relating to the evolving
history and culture of Charlotte County, and actively engage the public through research, education, and
outreach.

With an envelope of $3000 from CANB, the Charlotte County Archives will organize and catalogue
documents associated to or collected by the Charlotte County Historical Society (CCHS) over the years.
The predecessor of the Charlotte County Archives, the CCHS first organized in 1975, before the current
Charlotte County Archives was formed. All the hard work and research completed by the CCHS will be
made accessible to future researchers through this funding.
A grant of $2900 was awarded to the Charlotte County Archives to carefully examine, organize, and
catalogue the fonds (personal collections) of Dr. Charles Smith, Earl Caughey, Jackie Gibson, and Rose
McKay Haughn. These collections will provide further insight into churches, schools, family histories,
court proceedings, Charlotte County militia, the Town of St. Andrews, and other precious details about
Charlotte County history.

And finally, CANB has given $1400 towards arranging and processing 47 maps, floorplans, and
blueprints, each of value to researchers across the County.
This funding, in conjunction with a new website soon to be launched by the Charlotte County Archives,
will enable people to learn more about Charlotte County through online searches, a definite benefit
during the current pandemic, when social distancing is so crucial.

A HANDMADE ASSEMBLY: Call for Proposals

 

We invite Artists and Writers from across Canada and abroad to submit proposals for an upcoming publication exploring the theme of the Handmade.

Deadline for submissions: January 5, 2021

The origins of this publication are rooted in a long-running annual event hosted by Struts Gallery and the Owens Art Gallery that brought together artists, curators, and makers from the region and beyond to lead discussions, facilitate workshops, initiate projects, exhibit work, and share in a common thread—the handmade.

A Handmade Assembly originated in response to an increased interest in the handmade, deskilling, and DIY aesthetics that emerged in contemporary art practices near the beginning of the decade. The topic continues to appeal to artists exploring the extraordinary potential of craft processes, materials, and techniques, both for their capacity to speak directly and viscerally and for their political and historical potency.

For its tenth and final iteration, the long-running programme will be re-envisioned as an ambitious, bilingual book project that parlays nine years’ worth of inquiry into a comprehensive volume, with the goal of providing a multi-faceted view of the role of the handmade in contemporary art, while also extending these discussions to a new format.
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Artists Projects in Print

Deadline January 5, 2021

A Handmade Assembly has always encompassed a wide range of artistic practices and areas of research, including photography, performance, mending practices, food culture, collage, printmaking, flower arranging, and the intersection of new technologies with traditional craft approaches. We invite artists working in all disciplines to consider how the broad theme of the “handmade” might translate to a project on the printed page. Artists may document existing projects or produce new works. We encourage play within the format of the book, including handmade tactile elements, instructional works, creative writing, printed cut-outs, pull-out and tipped-in materials (bearing in mind cost, labour and edition size), etc.

Submission Format for Artists:
Please submit the following materials via WeTransfer to info@strutsgallery.ca with the subject heading: A Handmade Assembly

  • One-page (max.) description of the proposed project and the themes addressed
  • Up to 10 images of past work
  • Descriptions for each image including: title, date, materials, dimensions, etc.
  • A brief biography (250 words)
  • A brief artist statement (250 words)
  • Curriculum vitae (max. 3 pages), including contact information.
Artists will be paid fees consistent with the current CARFAC fee schedule. We encourage applications from IBPOC, LGBTQ2S+, disabled, and neuro-diverse artists.

For more information about submitting your work visit our site (here) or the call (here)

CALL FOR PROPOSALS:
Critical Texts, Essays, Interviews, Creative Writing, etc.

Deadline January 5, 2021

A Handmade Assembly has dedicated nine years towards pushing back against dominant art narratives that marginalize craft practices and has worked to foster and support an appreciation of the myriad art forms encompassed by the term handmade. We invite writers to interpret the topic of the “handmade” broadly, with the aim of presenting a multi-faceted view of the role of the handmade in contemporary art. Writers are encouraged to propose critical, historical or interpretive essays, interviews, creative writings, and so forth that address the intersection of contemporary art and the handmade. Ideally, we are seeking texts ranging from 500 to 1000 words.

Submission Format for Writers:
Please submit the following materials via WeTransfer to info@strutsgallery.ca with the subject heading: A Handmade Assembly

  • A brief one-page (max) proposal for an essay, interview or other text work

OR

  • A completed piece that has not been previously published (max. 1000 words);
  • Two writing samples which demonstrate your style and interests;
  • A brief biography of no more than 250 words;
  • Curriculum vitae (max. 3 pages), including contact information.
Writers will be paid $1.00/word for a word count of up to 1000. We encourage applications from IBPOC, LGBTQ2S+, disabled, and neuro-diverse writers.
For more information about submitting your work visit our site (here) or the call (here)
A Handmade Assembly is made possible through support from the Canada Council for the Arts and the New Brunswick Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture.

We would like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians—from all four directions—of the land on which we live. It is upon the unceded, ancestral lands of the Mi’kmaq that the partnership between Struts and Owens Art Gallery has come into existence. While this area is known as Sackville, New Brunswick, it is part of Siknikt, a district of the greater territory of Mi’kma’ki. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship,” which the Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik first signed with the British Crown in 1725.

Letter from Simon Brault – Canada Council for the Arts

Additional funding for the arts

When can the recovery truly begin and what will it look like? Even if we can’t say for sure, we can prepare.

In its 2020 Fall Economic Statement, the federal government announced $181.5M in additional funds in 2021‒22 for the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts to enhance their support to the arts sector. We expect that the specifics of the funding will be revealed in early 2021.

With these funds, the Council plans to support projects that create jobs. As soon as we get the green light, we will announce our initiatives, and we intend to distribute the funding very quickly. It is urgent that we support those who have been without work thus far. You should start preparing now.

  • If you have research and creation projects that require hiring collaborators, now is the time to define the broad strokes.
  • If you are part of an artistic group or organization, now is also the time to consider creative projects for new works or adaptations of existing works that will enable you to share your artistic and literary creations with broader audiences via digital technology.

We are looking for proposals that require that you hire artists and experts, who need to work to get through the pandemic. Once again, please be ready.

Before the new funding is made available, we will have the opportunity to discuss the last year and our vision for the future with you and with the broader public. And so I encourage you to add our 2021 Annual Public Meeting to your calendars (it will be held at 4 p.m. EST on January 26, 2021).

In closing, I want to thank you for your confidence, and I salute your courage and your efforts to fly the arts-and-culture flag high and proud during these difficult times. I wish you restorative holidays. I hope you take time to recuperate—and rest assured that we will be by your side more than ever after the holiday break.

Simon Brault, O.C., O.Q.
Director and CEO
