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

Museums for Me

BE HEARD – PARTICIPATE IN A DIALOGUE SESSION ON THE FUTURE OF MUSEUMS

Contribute to the important conversation about what museums need to do to continue serving our communities for generations to come.

We are actively seeking new voices and diverse perspectives to ensure that this dialogue is rich and multifaceted. We would love to hear from you.

Session overview:

  • When: Four sessions will be offered between December 3 and 10, 2020. Choose the one that works best for you. If you require CART captioning accommodation, we will be offering this in our evening session on December 8
  • Where: Zoom

  • Group dialogue: Exploring two big questions – 1) What does the museum of the future need to be to deliver the most value to our communities? 2) How do we get there?

WHY THIS IS IMPORTANT

There are all kinds of museums across Canada, and how we experience and value them is very personal. Please share your perspective to help museums sustain and grow their positive impact in our communities and in a changing world.

What do you love about museums and want to see more of? How do they need to evolve to better meet your needs and serve Canadians into the future? Help us answer these important questions.

The first conversations about this project took place in 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic affected how Canadians enjoy museums. Now is the right time to engage on the value and future of museums in Canada.

Holiday Shop Feature

ArtsLink NB knows it’s been a very difficult year for everyone, and the arts community has been especially hard-hit by all the cancellations due to COVID-19. Our staff have been panic buying local since the beginning of the pandemic, and we want to encourage our audience to buy from local artists as well.

 

To that end, we’re running an online artist shop promotion in advance of Christmas. If you’re an artist and have an online shop you’d like us to feature, please send an email to info@artslinknb.com with a short description and a link to your shop. If you’ve got a discount code for us, feel free to add that as well. We’ll be collecting links until Monday and we will start featuring them all through December.

 

In the meantime, check out the fantastic gift guide put together by our friends over at NB Made: https://nbmade.ca/pages/2020-holiday-gift-guide

 

Happy holidays!

Press Release Nov 19 Dans Encorps

PRESS RELEASE for immediate release

Moncton, November 19th, 2020 – The art of choreography will be highlighted this fall during the event Création Danse produced by Les Productions DansEncorps Inc.! Création Danse is an annual choreographic mentorship program that encourages artists of all levels to create and present choreography in a non-competitive atmosphere. The exchange between the dance artist and the community is a valued component of this program.

With the supervision of the DansEncorps Productions team, the participants are able to produce their work in a professional setting with good conditions. This is an opportunity for emerging choreographers and performers to improve their skills in this trade. The program encourages the presentation of diversity and various dance styles, from classical ballet to urban dance, including contemporary, folk dance and musical comedy.

Since September, the studios of the DansEncorps School have been incubators of ideas and have safely welcomed the groups (bubbles) and participants of Création Danse 2020. No less than eight new choreographies are being created and the artists are working diligently to finish and refine their work! The second audition is fast approaching, on November 22, 2020.

We can’t wait to unveil the original works resulting from this 2020 edition, on stage, the weekend of December 12th and 13th. Stay tuned for more information on our activities and presentations!

For more information, please communicate with Les Productions DansEncorps
