NBCCD Hoyt Residency Program


Be a part of the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design’s exciting third year of collaboration with Kings Landing Historical Settlement! Building on the success of our last two years, we are pleased to once again offer artist residencies for the summer.

Whether a student, emerging, mid-career, or established artist, craftspeople at all stages of their career are invited to apply. We are committed to offering a welcoming, vibrant, creative atmosphere that strengthens the bonds of our artistic community. Successful applicants will be provided shared or private studio space to work on their creative projects, in a communal environment. As part of this incredible opportunity, participants will have access to the beautiful historical village as well as the permanent collection during their stay. The NB Historical Archives’ Permanent Collection is a provincial gem and houses historical garments & textiles, furniture, tools, silverware, ceramics, baskets, and much more.

Applicants are encouraged to connect their project ideas to the inspiring living history museum that surrounds them and may choose to continue working on current pieces, develop new work, or use the time to explore and experiment. All craft, visual art, and writing media will be considered.

Residencies will take place in Hoyt House, beside the Kings Landing Welcome Center in Prince William, NB, and run from June 15 to October 4, 2020. Residencies are flexible and can be from 1 – 4 consecutive weeks, with new residents arriving on a Monday and leaving on a Sunday.

Residents are required to be in the studio for a minimum of 25 hours per week and are responsible for their own transportation to and from the location. Hours must be divided between 9 am & 6 pm daily. Accommodations are not available on site, however if you’re travelling there are local options for a place to stay (eg. Riverside Resort and Conference Center, Air BnB, and Woolastook Park and Mactaquac Provincial Park for camping).

There are shared and private rooms, with a shared textile studio if you need access to certain equipment (see application for available equipment). Multiple applicants can apply together – please specify if you’re sharing a space or need separate rooms.  We can’t guarantee scheduling of separate rooms but we’ll try our best.  There is also a communal kitchen and separate dye kitchen.

An important aspect to this residency is helping to build connections within our creative community, so please be willing to, within reason, share and engage with fellow residents.

Participants have the opportunity to give a pubic artist talk about their work, should they choose.

Last year we hosted 17 artists, alongside students, whose work included glass mosaic, natural dyeing, rug hooking, photography, and writing.  We’re looking forward to seeing what will be proposed for this year!

APPLY NOW, to fill out the form and email to nbccdresidency@gmail.com

*To help offset residency costs, participants may apply to offer a ½ or 1-day workshop at Kings Landing through NBCCD Edventures (even though the deadline for application has passed).  There is a minimum number of registrants required to run a workshop.  Participation relies on proper promotion, so if you hope to run a workshop, please apply to Edventures ASAP so we can be ready to get the word out early.

More information on Edventures and application form found here.

Visit Our Campus

The best way to find out if NBCCD is the place for you is to visit our campus for a guided tour. During your tour, you will have the opportunity to chat with instructors, meet current students, see student work and observe in-class demos. Tours are available Mondays and Tuesdays. Contact us at nbccdrecruiting@gnb.ca to schedule your tour today!


Join Trudy Gallagher on a private walk-through the College or schedule a zoom call to discuss your creative future at NBCCD. Due to our small class sizes, we’re still able to offer the hands-on training we’re known for and are able to get you in front of the equipment you need to learn the science of craft & design. Schedule a virtual tour or chat to learn more.
