Mission:   Third Space is a Saint John-based artist-run centre committed to facilitating the education, understanding, and appreciation of contemporary art at a local and national level through exhibitions, workshops, screenings, and other activities for which artists receive fair compensation.

Vision: To provide opportunities, exposure, and fair representation to emerging and established artists in Southern New Brunswick, the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq Peoples; to enrich lives through exposure to the arts.

Third Space aims to:

  • Present work that is exploratory, challenging and critical in nature.
  • Present work that may not be commercially viable.
  • Encourage exploratory and hybrid curatorial practices.
  • Develop creative partnerships and collaborations within the community for the advancement of Canadian contemporary art.
  • Treat artists in a fair and professional manner.
  • Remunerate artists based on CAR/FAC payment schedules.
  • Be an open, inviting and inclusive space; everyone is welcome.
  • Ensure a variety of educational and community-sensitive programming.
