 Jobs & Residencies

BENEATH THE SURFACE RESIDENCY IN FUNDY NATIONAL PARK
The New Brunswick Crafts Council (NBCC) is pleased to announce its new residency program with Fundy National Park (FNP). Our 2017 residency program is designed to give 20 artists five days (June 5 – 9, 2017) to think, sketch, and play with ideas. They will be given the time and space to develop new ideas as they experience the natural landscapes of New Brunswick and are stimulated by scientific processes that shape and change the natural world. Scientists and park interpreters will interact with the artists to educate and inspire. The 5-day residency will promote the cross-pollination of ideas as artists spend time alone, with each other, and with the scientist and interpreters. Please note that this residency has a physical component of hikes, park exploration, and an optional kayak trip.
The residency program is linked to the 2017 NBCC exhibition, which will feature new works developed by the 20 residency artists.


CALL FOR CURATOR : FUNDY RESIDENCY
The New Brunswick Crafts Council is seeking a curator for the 2017 NBCC exhibition, which is linked to the Beneath the Surface residency program in Fundy National Park (FNP).

COLUMN SHIFTING : STABILITY AND CULTURAL EQUITY FELLOWSHIP
Deadline: Oct. 31
Column Shifting is a research and public programming initiative at Flux Factory that will provide funded housing for 2 selected participants exploring the relationship between financial stability and cultural equity in small art spaces in NYC.
Grassroots non-commercial art spaces like Flux Factory strive to play a key role in creating
opportunity for all types of artistic experimentation regardless of race, socioeconomic status, or gender identity. At the same time, these small venues often struggle to survive both financially and legally. A disproportionate amount of administrative time can be spent on keeping the organization afloat, rather than fulfilling their mission statement and artistic practices. The demographics of which spaces survive and which spaces don’t closely fall along class and race lines.
We’re looking for research-based cultural producers, activists, journalists, social justice organizers, academics, etc. to continue ongoing work or propose a new project that works with the relationship between financial sustainability and cultural equity in small art spaces.
The project provides funded housing for 2 selected participants for 2-3 months in March to June 
2017 and supports a variety of public programming from late 2016 to mid-2017.
