The Artists-In-Schools Performance Program is a special initiative put in place to celebrate Canada 150 by offering schools an opportunity to host one or more N.B. professional artists in schools for the 2017-2018 school year.


The Artists-In-Schools Performance Program is offered to English-language school districts. Any school in these districts may participate.


The primary goal of the Program is to enhance student’s artistic perception and appreciation of the arts by bringing together the creative potential of students and the unique energy of performing artists. The Program is offered to English-language school districts and provides up to a maximum of $685.

NOTE: Francophone schools will also benefit from the Program but directly through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development’s existing Programs.

NB professional artists interested in performing in schools as part of this initiative are invited to submit to the Performing Artist Registry using the Call for Artists form.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Applications for performances occurring during the current school year will be considered from September 1st 2017 to March 23rd 2018 or until the Program budget is fully depleted.
