Inspiring Action. Nurturing Artists. Building Community

Seeking submissions for our Artist Residency and Mentorship Program

*Notice for Participants*

This Artist Residency and Mentorship Program will not include any physical residency component or require any relocation by participants. Mentoring will take place virtually over Zoom with participants having the opportunity to gather together physically at the end of the program.

Are you interested in leading a values-driven group of creative activists to explore how art can impact social change around clean energy, energy affordability and energy poverty

Are you a New Brunswick-based, mid-career community-engaged artist or artist team, passionate about climate justice, who would benefit from being mentored by a senior community-engaged artist? 

If so, the Conservation Council of New Brunswick invites you to contribute your passions and talents to this creative collaboration. 

Since 2020, the Conservation Council of New Brunswick’s Harm to Harmony program has connected New Brunswick artists of all levels and backgrounds to help express participants’ feelings about climate change and environmental issues. Led by environmental artist Juliana Bedoya and co-facilitated by musician/writer/Instruments of Change Executive Director, Laura Barron, this highly impactful climate action art program engages the public to raise awareness about these challenges, advocates for solutions, and inspires behaviour change. Committed to fostering local leadership, H2H is now excited to invite two new New Brunswick-based artists/or artist teams (mediums listed below) to lead and facilitate climate action community-engaged art projects of their own, under the mentorship of Juliana and Laura. 

We look forward to hearing from candidates who represent the broad range of our sector including (but not limited to) those who are Indigenous, Black, People of Colour, LGBTQ2+, and of mixed abilities.

Compensation: Mentees will receive $4,800 for 4 months of community-engaged residency and mentorship, which includes 120 contract hours, as well as up to $1,000 ( with receipts) for materials.
