A Mentorship Program from Connexion ARC

Category: arts 117

Connexion Artist Run Centre is looking to pair artists for three month mentorship and commission. Applications now open. 

Connexion ARC has issued a call to early/mid-career artists for a collaborative program entitled, Connexion Exchange.

Connexion Exchange aims to pair eight established and eight emerging or mid-career artists for a three month mentorship. These mentorships will result in a paid commission for a collaborative artwork and artist talk presented by each pair.

This program is for artists seeking peer feedback, community building, and an opportunity to collaborate with an established artist they admire. Mentor artists will be approached after mentees are selected to ensure the best possible opportunity and fit for both parties.

Connexion ARC is calling on early/mid-career artists in New Brunswick to apply to Connexion ARC for this program by February 26, 2021.

To apply, send a letter of interest, CV, and up to 10 images of your work to info@connexionarc.org.

Acknowledgments

Connexion ARC respectfully acknowledges the land on which we operate as the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik/Wəlastəkwiyik title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
