Additional Eligibility Criteria:

An applicant is eligible to apply when he or she:
- Meets artsnb’s definition of the arts professional;
- Has resided in New Brunswick for at least one year immediately preceding the deadline date and;
- Presents a project which meets the objectives and the criteria of the program.

You must meet artsnb’s definitions of an arts professional, someone who:
- Has specialized training in the field (not necessarily in academic institutions)
- Is recognized as a professional by his or her peers (arts professionals working in the same artistic capacity), and
- Is committed to devoting more time to artistic activity, if financially possible.

To meet the definition of a professional critic or curator, you must also have:
- Produced an independent body of work after specialized training
- Written at least three critical texts or reviews that have been published in a professional context
- Made at least one public presentation of your work in a professional context over a three-year period (curators only)

- Arts professionals employed with or contracted by private or public organizations or institutions may apply on their own behalf, on condition that the applicant’s work on the project, and expenses included in the application, is not funded by their employer.
- Applications will not be accepted on behalf of organizations or institutions.
- Projects produced for the purpose of academic credit are not eligible.
- An arts professional who has already received funding must submit a final report for approval for the funded project before applying for a new grant.
- Arts professionals who have an outstanding final report and who have exceeded the prescribed time limit are ineligible for any other artsnb grants until this final report is submitted and approved.
- An individual may apply for funding for a collaborative project involving other participants. The grant will, however, be issued to the coordinator of the project and be considered a grant to that individual. Letters of agreement with the artists involved in the project must accompany the application for funding.
- Arts professionals may not submit more than one application per competition deadline.
- Projects may not be funded retroactively. Projects may, however, begin in the period between the date of the competition deadline and receiving funding.
- It is the responsibility of the arts professional to submit all required support material including letters of recommendation by the deadline date.

Pre-Application Information:

- April 1
- October 1

If either of these dates falls on a weekend or statutory holiday, the deadline moves to the next business day.

Applicants will be notified of the results, by mail, approximately three months after the competition deadline.
