Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to New Brunswick nonprofits and individual artists for artist residencies. Funding is intended for organizations and institutions to host professional artists to carry out specific creative projects. Individual professional artists are also invited to apply for residency opportunities taking place at home or outside the province.

The objectives of the Artist in Residence program are:

  • To increase opportunities for professional artists to undertake specific creative projects while being hosted by New Brunswick institutions or organizations;
  • To increase opportunities for New Brunswick students and residents to develop their awareness of the arts through direct contact with professional artists; and
  • To increase opportunities for New Brunswick professional artists to participate in residencies at home or abroad.

Eligible artistic disciplines include architecture, craft, dance, literary arts (including spoken word, storytelling, literary performance and literary translation), media arts, multidisciplinary arts, classical and non-classical music, theatre and visual arts.

Eligible genres for all artistic disciplines include those whose intent and/or content places creativity, self-expression and/or experimentation above the current demands and format expectations of the mainstream industry, and has a significance beyond being solely a form of entertainment.
