NBCCD Visiting Scholar Program 🎓

The New Brunswick College of Craft and Design is pleased to announce a new initiative designed to give its students the opportunity to learn from and collaborate with a creative role model.

Launching in January 2023, the Visiting Scholar program will provide a creative, dynamic environment for a visiting artist to build and accelerate their practice. They will participate in the NBCCD community by teaching a class or taking on a creative or educational assignment, and interacting with students during the academic year.

An NBCCD instructor gives a drawing demonstration.

“The Visiting Scholar program has the potential to energize and enrich our College community, as well as the wider cultural life of New Brunswick,” said Academic Dean Jared Peters.

NBCCD encourages applications from creative workers and educators whose achievements have been recognized as demonstrating extraordinary promise in any area of craft and design practice and teaching.

Expectations

NBCCD Visiting Scholars spend one academic semester (January-April 2023) at NBCCD and formal teaching is expected. Visiting Scholars can expect to teach one course subject to approval by the Academic Dean, but may be asked to take on a creative or educational assignment in lieu of a class. The teaching load is light, but the expectation is that Visiting Scholars will be full and active members of the NBCCD community, committed to frequent and engaged interactions with students during the academic year.

Compensation

Each Visiting Scholar will receive $15,000 for their contribution and time to the college. This program is not intended to fund work leading to an advanced degree.

To apply

Interested applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, two references, and a minimum of 10 portfolio images of your work and/or video links (e.g., performances, films, etc.) to jared.peters@gnb.ca. Applicants should be craft-makers, designers, filmmakers, and/or visual artists who would find it beneficial to spend one semester teaching and working in a vibrant college community.

Please also submit a 500-750 word proposal that includes how you would hope to use the one-term fellowship to develop your work; how you would contribute to NBCCD’s community through teaching and/or production; and how you have encouraged environmental responsibility and/or diversity and inclusion in your artistic practice, teaching, and/or research.

The deadline to apply is Oct. 24, 2022.
