SSANC are honoured to announce the launch of a new collaboration with the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation.
Introducing the Sunbury Shores-Beaverbrook Artists in Residency: 2019
Sunbury Shores Arts & Nature Centre (SSANC) is a non-profit and membership-based charitable organization located in St. Andrews by-the-Sea, New Brunswick. Since 1964, SSANC has been instructing students of all ages in arts and nature education to help develop a deep connection between arts learning, environmental stewardship and engagement. This is achieved through free and fee-based programming, outreach, exhibitions, artist talks, residencies, and community events delivered by professional artists and educators with a commitment to excellence.
The Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation was created by Lord Beaverbrook (1879-1964), a Canadian businessman, statesman and newspaper magnate who grew up in New Brunswick as William Maxwell Aitken. He established the Beaverbrook Foundation in 1954 and the Beaverbrook Canadian Foundation in 1960, to continue supporting causes he had championed during his lifetime.
New Brunswick based artists working in ceramics, metal, printmaking, installation, visual arts or interdisciplinary arts will be considered for this creative residency. Preference will be given to artists who integrate nature, environmental research or environmental awareness/issues into their arts practice.
Submissions are on a rolling basis. First review of submissions will take place by May 1, 2019.

Residency Format: 2 weeks. Artists choose time-frame (November – April)
