The artist residency program called InterMISSION, established during the pandemic, will continue to expand the capacity and activities in the theatre during otherwise quiet periods in the annual rental and programming cycle. Designed for local artists to nurture and support creativity and innovative practices in their craft, the InterMISSION residency program offers artists mentorship, space and support.

During the inaugural season, the Playhouse welcomed 71 local artists for 11 multi-disciplinary residencies while the stage was not being used for regular programming. This time was used for artistic activities including script development, preparing for concerts, movement exploration, filming music videos, and more.

Based on the success of the pilot program, the Fredericton Playhouse will continue InterMISSION residencies while returning to a fully scheduled season in 2021 and seeks proposals for the 22-23 season.

Residencies are open to theatre artists, musicians, choreographers, composers, dancers, visual artists, designers, etc. Individual artists, artistic companies, collectives, or any combination thereof working collaboratively are eligible to apply.

Super Food Summit Series x Todd Gronsdahl

Série Super Food Summit Series
Projet virtuel et interactif / Virtual and interactive project

French follows

Early in the pandemic, Todd pivoted from his postponed installations and food performances to explore his Saskatchewan Maritime Museum narratives through lo-fi stop animation. As pandemic restrictions continue to alter our opportunities to travel, we have decided to collaborate on a “prairie/maritime food summit” of sorts.

We want you to submit any recipes, lore, ingredients or maritime foodie experiences!

These anecdotes will flesh out an imagined Saskatchewan/New Brunswick Chef Summit from our distant past that Gronsdahl will cobble together from rumour, myth and outright fabrication into a charming stop-animation story.

Follow our IG page and stories in the month of July to follow his progress and to view the official story of the chef’s summit dredged from the annals of time!

Au début de la pandémie, Todd a reporté ses installations et ses performances alimentaires pour explorer les récits du Musée maritime de la Saskatchewan par le biais d’animations stop-motion. Comme les restrictions liées à la pandémie continuent d’altérer nos possibilités de voyager, nous avons décidé de collaborer à une sorte de «sommet alimentaire prairies/maritimes».

Nous voulons que vous nous soumettiez vos recettes, vos traditions, vos ingrédients ou vos expériences culinaires maritimes!

Ces anecdotes viendront étoffer un sommet des chefs de la Saskatchewan et du Nouveau-Brunswick imaginé dans notre lointain passé et que Gronsdahl reconstituera à partir de rumeurs, de mythes et d’affabulations pour en faire une charmante histoire en stop animation.

CALL FOR PROJECTS – PERENNIAL FRESCOES

INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR PROJECTS FOR THE CREATION OF PERENNIAL FRESCOES IN THE STATIONS OF THE GRAND PARIS EXPRESS

The aim of the consultation is to select 32 artists for the creation of illustrations on the platforms of 30 Grand Paris Express train stations, that will be put into service on the horizons of 2024 to 2026.

The object of this commission is the creation of illustrations that will unfold on the platforms of the Grand Paris Express. Each selected artist will be attributed with the elaboration of the illustrations of one train station. This commission looks to illustrate and interpret the territories served by the train stations of the Grand Paris Express, in a sensitive, metaphorical and even abstract manner. The artistic creations proposed as part of this consultation will be specifically thought and created for this commission.

The consultation is directed at artists and professional authors from all of the fields of comics, illustration, animation cinema and graphic design. The diversity of artists will guarantee the quality and the originality of this commission. The commission unfolds itself based on the principle of one artist per train station. In the interconnection train stations where several lines of the new network cross, several artists can be selected to identify each of these lines. This commission is based on a total surface of almost 50m² per train station, spread out on several modules of the train station platform.

The Grand Paris Express illustrations will enrich the train stations’ signage and urban furniture imagined by designers Ruedi Baur and Patrick Jouin, bringing a sensitive, artistic and urban dimension in the train stations’ spaces. In their implementation, these illustrations must immediately be identified as objects stemming from artistic production and shouldn’t create confusion with functional information.

The artists are invited to “illustrate” the territory to establish a link between the underground world and the city on the surface. These illustrations will be particularly visible from the inside of the trains and upon the descent of the trains. In this way, they will constitute “large windows onto the city”

Applications must be submitted before September 15th 2021 at 12 pm (Paris time).

An illustration module is visible at the Fabrique du Métro at Saint Ouen. Visits possible by appointment or during an open day.

Information available here: https://www.societedugrandparis.fr/gpe/visiter-la-fabrique-du-metro

 

HOW TO APPLY?

The applicants must present a single application, no matter the amount of units they are applying for. The applicants are strongly encouraged to respond to the entire set of units.

The application should include:

A Curriculum Vitae presenting career and experiences (diplomas, courses, exhibitions, residencies, publications, grants, awards, etc.). 2 pages maximum.

  • An artistic file in the shape of a portfolio of 5 to 10 reference images, accompanied by a short description of the presented images (15 pages maximum). For
    multimedia documents, indicate the links in this artistic file.
  • A statement of intent of one page maximum explaining:
    • the interest of the candidate in this consultation and the project of illustrations
      of the territories of the Grand Paris Express;
    • the vision and intention of the candidate to illustrate a territory of the Grand
      Paris on the scale of the formats planned on the train stations’ platforms;
    • potentially, the specific connection with or interest of the candidate in one or
      several of the territories or cities served by the metro of the Grand Paris Express.
  • An application form based on the model supplied on the Société du Grand Paris’ website and on the platform www.marches-publics.gouv.fr.

Applications must be submitted before september 15th 2021 at 12 pm (Paris time).

The candidates must submit their application exclusively via the platform www.marches-publics.gouv.fr

PITCH YOUR STORY BY JULY 01, 2021

CreatedHere Magazine

We are seeking contributors for CreatedHere Magazine Issue 18: Ode to Studios, launching December 2021.

From the rolling tides of Fundy to the bustling historic splendour of Saint John, to an abundance of tight-knit, water-laced communities, South NB is an artistic adventurer’s dream. What artist hasn’t felt their creativity surge after a getaway to this region? The artists who live there are immersed in this wellspring of inspiration, and it shows.

Ode to Studios is our annual winter theme. This year we focus in on artist studios in South NB (for our purposes, that means preference will be given to artists in Saint John, St. Andrew’s, St. Stephen, Sussex, Fundy Park and surrounding areas).

We are seeking:

  • photographic tours of cozy artist studios and first-hand accounts of the routines, rituals and habits that guide studio practice
  • artwork and photography that explores winter or the embrace of a seasonal lifestyle
  • musings and poetry about the South NB landscape (especially the winter landscape) and the artist’s place within it
  • pairings of visual artists with poets/writers/songwriters, responding to one another’s work

This issue is less about long-form articles and more about largescale, calming imagery with short-form, poetic writing and artist quotes. Think coffee table book. For ideas, get inspired by the 2020 version here and the 2019 version here.

Only complete submissions will be considered. Please click HERE for the submission checklist and full details on how we select featured artists.

With thanks to the Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation and the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design for funding our contributor fees, we offer payment of $50-$250 depending on contribution size.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW OUR SUBMISSION CHECKLIST.

EMAIL PITCHES TO EDITOR@CREATEDHERE.CA BY JULY 01, 2021.

SELECTED CONTRIBUTORS WILL THEN PROVIDE WRITINGS AND IMAGERY BY AUGUST 01, 2021.

ISSUE 18 WILL LAUNCH IN DECEMBER 2021.
