Saint John’s Local 107.3 FM launches new artist residency. Currently seeking applicants for August term.

local-107-3With immense thanks to the Saint John Community Arts Board funding program, Saint John’s campus-based community radio station, Local 107.3FM, is seeking an artist in residence for August 2016. The flexible residency will run for three weeks including a week of preparation and a week and a half of residency that will culminate in a performance or display and an artist talk.

This residency is open to a professional, amateur, or aspiring artist to develop and exhibit their practice while increasing the opportunities for New Brunswick students and residents to develop their awareness of the arts through direct contact with eminent professionals. The application is open to a wide range of disciplines including music, literary arts, media arts, creative projects, etc. While applications will be open to all interested, particular consideration will be given towards women, youth, students, and local/New Brunswick residents.

The exciting potential challenge of this project will be to find creative ways in which to present media to a radio audience that is not normally an audio experience. We aim to provide space for creative commentary, creative expression, and experimentation which will include a minimum of three radio programs that will air on Local 107.3FM and be preserved physically and digitally. As described, this project will aim to engage and educate the public while creating an opportunity to develop the arts in our community.

Submission Guidelines for Residency Proposals

  • Artist(s) bio & statement

The accepted candidate will be expected to:

Send all applications to with the subject line: “Artist in Residence: (insert your name).” Applications close on July 15 at noon.
