The New Brunswick Arts Board is an arm’s length arts funding agency with a legislated mandate to facilitate and promote the creation of art as well as administering funding programs for professional artists in the province.
Just like every year, we had the pleasure to hire a summer intern through a grant from Canada Summer Jobs for a period of 8 weeks. Each summer intern work closely with one of our staff member on a special project. Meet Nicole Collier artsnb 2020 summer intern! During her contract, she had the opportunity to work with Sarah-Beth Parker, our Program Officer, doing some research on an equity related project.
As the 2020 student intern at artsnb, I thought it was time to introduce myself. My name is Nicole Collier and I joined the team at the beginning of July to work on equity-related projects.
A little more about me, I was born and raised in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and moved to Fredericton in 2018 to attend the University of New Brunswick. I am currently attending Renaissance College where I am working towards a Bachelor of Philosophy in Interdisciplinary Leadership. I am active in the university with previous experience as a member of the Student Union Food Strategy Team, and a current role as Co-Delegate Director for the Leadership Entrepreneurship Action Plan (LEAP) Conference.
My personal involvement in the arts began as a child when I started playing piano at the age of 7. While I was initially educated in classical piano, this early interest later led to passions for music theory, music history and jazz music, which I continue to nurture today. I have a hobby in film photography, although recently I have been honing my skills in digital photography. In my spare time you can find me learning new skills (currently trying embroidery!), shopping around for cassettes for my growing collection, or curled up reading a book.
I look forward to completing my summer internship placement at artsnb and to continuing my work for artsnb part-time throughout the fall. I am happy to be furthering my journey with the organization and gaining career-relevant experience in the New Brunswick cultural sector. Join me by email firstname.lastname@example.org .
