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.
The Equinox program supports Indigenous artists, curators and groups to engage in artistic creation and professional development. Eligible projects can range from
research and development for the creation of new works
creation and presentation of artistic work
activities that support and strengthen the Indigenous arts community.
The Equinox program provides flexible, short-term support to individual Indigenous artists or collectives applying on behalf of small or large groups, arts groups, organizations, community groups, independent arts administrators, and artistic and cultural mediators. Grant funds may be used for organizational development and professional development that will have a positive impact on building the arts ecosystem in Indigenous communities.
