Evolution exists not only in the content and style of the music and text, but also in performance practice.

Campaign Director

Le poste

Le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick (MNB) est une institution culturelle unique vouée à la collection, la préservation, la recherche et l’interprétation de matériel visant à favoriser une plus grande compréhension et appréciation du Nouveau-Brunswick, tant dans la province que mondialement. Le Musée est à un moment très stimulant de son développement. En effet, avec l’appui de la Fondation du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick et du gouvernement de la province, le Musée s’apprête à mettre en œuvre un ambitieux programme de renouveau et de croissance.

Nous sommes à la recherche d’un collecteur de fonds et directeur de projet d’exception, prêt à se joindre à notre Fondation à titre de directeur de campagne. Relevant du président du conseil d’administration de la Fondation et travaillant en étroite collaboration avec le chef de la direction du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick, le directeur de campagne dirigera la mise en œuvre stratégique et tactique de la prochaine campagne majeure de la Fondation en appui au Musée, s’assurant qu’elle soit bien exécutée et réussie. Le directeur de campagne agira comme responsable principal chargé de guider et d’appuyer le cabinet de campagne et les autres bénévoles dans leurs efforts communs en vue de favoriser et d’améliorer les relations avec les sympathisants actuels et potentiels du Musée, incluant les personnes, les entreprises, les organisations et les fondations. Le directeur pourrait aussi être appelé à participer à la préparation de demandes adressées aux divers paliers de gouvernement et de leur suivi. Ce poste constitue une superbe occasion de faire partie de l’expansion et de la transformation du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick.

Le Musée est situé à Saint John, au Nouveau-Brunswick. Les candidats doivent être prêts à voyager périodiquement dans la province, et occasionnellement ailleurs au pays. Il s’agit d’un contrat à temps plein d’une durée de quatre ans, avec possibilité de renouvellement.


Le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick

Tirant ses origines du Gesner’s Museum of Natural History, inauguré en 1842, le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick célébrait en 2017 ses 175 ans, ce qui en fait le plus vieux musée canadien en activité continue. Très apprécié des visiteurs, le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick est un établissement public, fondé  sur les collections, qui s’adresse aux Canadiens et Canadiennes dans les deux langues officielles du pays pour contribuer à la connaissance et à la compréhension de l’héritage naturel et culturel de la province. Le Musée possède de vastes collections diversifiée d’artéfacts du Nouveau-Brunswick et d’ailleurs. Il est aussi un chef de file en matière d’expertise au sein du réseau de musées communautaires de la province.

Qu’il s’agisse d’histoire naturelle, de géologie, de botanique, de zoologie ou de paléontologie, le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick effectue des recherches et raconte plusieurs histoires fantastiques d’importance internationale, dont voici quelques exemples :

  • Depuis la découverte à Campbellton du plus ancien fossile de requin connu, des chercheurs viennent de tous les coins du monde étudier cette pièce importante pour aider à résoudre l’énigme de l’évolution des requins.
  • Le personnel du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick a aidé à faire déclarer d’importance internationale par l’UNESCO le Géoparc mondial Stonehammer de la Baie de Fundy.

Nous racontons aussi l’histoire vivante, qui témoigne de la force et de l’ingéniosité des peuples du monde. Ainsi, la découverte et la préservation d’un canot de mer en pin au design ingénieux datant des années 1500 raconte le savoir-faire maritime des navigateurs Mi’kmaq et constitue un symbole de fierté. Le drapeau du 104e régiment raconte quant à lui l’histoire de l’une des plus grandes marches de l’histoire humaine. Mille Nouveau-Brunswickois ont survécu à la longue marche vers Kingston en plein cœur de l’hiver pour se battre pour l’indépendance du Canada dans la guerre de 1812.

Le Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick compte présentement deux installations principales :

Centre des collections et de la recherche du MNB

Au Centre des collections et de la recherche du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick, les collections d’importance provinciale, nationale et internationale sont étudiées et interprétées par le personnel du MNB, des étudiants universitaires et des chercheurs visiteurs pour assurer la préservation et la diffusion de l’histoire, de la culture et de l’histoire naturelle du Nouveau-Brunswick. Le Centre accueille des chercheurs du monde entier, répond aux demandes internationales sur ses collections, mentore les étudiants, crée des expositions pour le Centre d’exposition du MNB et ailleurs dans la province et soutient la production d’information scientifique et éducative.

Centre d’exposition du MNB

Situé à Market Square de Saint John, le Centre d’exposition du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick partage avec les résidents du Nouveau-Brunswick et les visiteurs les collections et histoires de la province. Désigné comme l’une des principales attractions touristiques culturelles du Nouveau-Brunswick, cet établissement se prête bien aux activités pédagogiques en lien avec le programme scolaire ainsi qu’à diverses possibilités d’apprentissage de toute une vie. Le Musée offre aujourd’hui trois étages et 60 000 pieds carrés d’espaces d’exposition ainsi qu’une vaste gamme de programmes publics. Quelque 65 000 personnes visitent le MNB chaque année. Le Musée s’associe au secteur privé pour offrir des programmes novateurs aux visites et rencontres de groupes, congressistes, festivaliers et participants à des événements spéciaux ainsi qu’à d’autres publics cibles.

Plans d’expansion : un fier passé, un futur ambitieux

Au rythme de l’histoire, de nombreuses nouvelles découvertes et collections doivent être documentées, préservées, conservées et interprétées pour le public. Mais l’âge et les limitations physiques de nos espaces freinent notre capacité à réaliser le travail de calibre mondial que nous devons effectuer en tant que gardiens et narrateurs de l’histoire. C’est pourquoi nous avons entrepris l’expansion et le renouvellement de nos espaces de collection et d’exposition.

Des installations plus amples et modernes nous permettront :

  • d’attirer plus de visiteurs et de leur offrir une plus-value pour tirer des leçons de l’histoire en mouvement;
  • de poursuivre des activités de recherche et de préservation novatrices, l’essence même des activités d’un musée moderne;
  • d’assurer la préservation sécuritaire de nos objets pour les générations futures.

Au cours des dernières années, le conseil d’administration et le personnel du Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick, de concert avec la province et d’autres intervenants, ont investi des ressources importantes dans le développement de scénarios pour répondre aux problèmes que rencontrent le Centre des collections et de la recherche du MNB sur l’avenue Douglas et le Centre d’exposition du MNB à Market Square.

Au fil de divers processus d’examen, il a été établi qu’un nouveau bâtiment conçu spécialement à cet effet sera construit pour réunir sous un même toit tous les éléments principaux du Centre d’exposition et du Centre des collections et de la recherche du Musée au centre-ville de Saint John. Le financement provincial a été engagé et un site a été retenu à proximité du bord de l’eau.

La nature autonome du nouvel édifice, conçu spécialement pour répondre aux besoins du Musée, favorisera et facilitera le financement provenant des secteurs public et philanthropique pour en améliorer le développement. On s’attend à ce que la relocalisation du MNB augmente sa visibilité et complète d’autres attractions du secteur pour assurer l’avenir de Saint John en tant que ville portuaire vibrante et culturelle. De plus, tout en étant un établissement culturel et scientifique provincial, le nouveau musée sera un carrefour social et une attraction touristique majeure.

L’objectif ultime est de créer des installations :

  • qui permettront d’accueillir, de montrer et d’interpréter adéquatement l’incroyable collection du Musée et de raconter les histoires qui s’y rattachent;
  • qui faciliteront les recherches et les activités scientifiques et de conservation qu’entreprend le Musée;
  • qui représenteront tout ce qui fait aujourd’hui le Nouveau-Brunswick et les gens qui y vivent;
  • en plus de fournir un espace fonctionnel pour héberger et préserver la collection au cours des années futures, les nouvelles installations constitueront un endroit de qualité appropriée ainsi qu’un remarquable emblème architectural.

Bref, un Musée du Nouveau-Brunswick renouvelé occupera la première place dans l’esprit des visiteurs et jouera un rôle essentiel dans l’évolution future de la province. Bien que le Musée soit financé en partie par la province du Nouveau-Brunswick, un appui supplémentaire sera requis de la part de donateurs, bailleurs de fonds, membres et commanditaires pour lui permettre de continuer à maintenir son histoire d’excellence avec des collections, des recherches, des galeries, des programmes et des expositions de calibre mondial.

About The New Brunswick Museum

Tracing our origins back to Gesner’s Museum of Natural History that opened in 1842, the New Brunswick Museum (NBM) is Canada’s oldest continuing museum, turning 175 years old in 2017. Highly-rated by visitors, The New Brunswick Museum is a collection-based public institution which engages people in Canada’s two official languages, contributing to the knowledge and understanding of New Brunswick’s natural and cultural heritage. The Museum has diverse and extensive collections of artefacts from New Brunswick and beyond. The NBM also is a leader in providing expertise to the network of community museums throughout the Province.

When it comes to natural history and the areas of geology, botany, zoology, and paleontology, the New Brunswick Museum researches and tells many fantastic stories of international significance. A few examples include:

  • Since we unearthed the oldest known shark fossil in Campbellton, researchers come from all over the world to study this critical piece in the shark evolution puzzle.
  • New Brunswick Museum staff helped designate the Bay of Fundy’s Stonehammer as a UNESCO-supported Global GeoPark, an internationally significant site.

We also tell the story of our living history, attesting to the strength and ingenuity of the world’s people. For instance, the discovery and our preservation of an ingeniously-designed pine sea canoe from the 1500s documents the craftsmanship and sea-faring skills of the Mi’kmaq people and stands as a symbol of pride. As well, our Regiment of the 104th flag tells the story of one of the greatest marches in human history: One thousand New Brunswickers had the grit to survive the harsh mid-winter trek to Kingston to fight for an independent Canada in the War of 1812.

Currently, the New Brunswick Museum is operating in two main facilities:

NBM Collections and Research Centre

Within the New Brunswick Museum Collections and Research Centre, collections of provincial, national, and international significance are researched and interpreted by NBM staff, university students, and visiting researchers for the preservation and dissemination of New Brunswick history, culture, and natural history. The Centre hosts researchers from around the world, responds to international queries about its holdings, mentors students, creates exhibitions for display at the NBM Exhibition Centre and at various venues around the province, and supports the production of academic and educational information.

NBM Exhibition Centre

The New Brunswick Museum Exhibition Centre in Market Square, Saint John shares the collections and stories of New Brunswick with residents of New Brunswick and visitors to the province. It is one of New Brunswick’s key cultural tourism attractions, as well as a significant venue for curriculum-based and life-long learning experiences. The Museum now offers three floors and 60,000 square feet of exhibition spaces and a wide range of public programs. Approximately 65,000 people visit the NBM each year. The NBM partners with the private sector to offer innovative programming to group tours, meetings and convention groups, festivals and special events, as well as to other targeted audiences.

Expansion Plans: Proud Past, Bold Future

As history marches on, there are many new discoveries and collections that need documenting, preserving, curating, and interpreting for the public. But the age and physical limitations of our spaces hamper our ability to carry out the world class work we must do as keepers and tellers of history. That is why we are embarking on an expansion and renewal of our Collections and Exhibition spaces. 

Ample, modern facilities will let us:

  • Attract and bring more value to visitors to learn from history as it unfolds.
  • Pursue innovative research and preservation, the business of a modern museum.
  • Ensure the safety of our objects for future generations.

Over the past years, the Board of Directors and staff of the New Brunswick Museum (NBM), with the Province and others, have invested significant resources into the development of scenarios to address issues at both the NBM Collections and Research Centre on Douglas Avenue and the NBM Exhibition Centre in Market Square.

Through various review and engagement processes, it has been determined that a new, purpose-built building will be constructed to house and consolidate the NBM’s Exhibition Centre and the Research and Collections into one facility in Uptown Saint John. Provincial funding has been committed, and a site close to the waterfront in Uptown Saint John has been identified. 

The stand-alone, purpose-built nature of the proposed new building on the waterfront will encourage and facilitate private sector and philanthropic fund raising to enhance the development. It is expected that the relocation of the NBM will increase its visibility and profile as well as complement other attractions in the area to secure Saint John’s future as vibrant and cultural port city. Further, as well as being a key provincial cultural and scientific institution, the new museum will be a social hub and major tourism attraction.

The ultimate objective is to create a facility that:

  • Properly houses, exhibits, and interprets the amazing collection and tells the related stories.
  • Allows for the great research, scientific and conservation activity that the NBM undertakes.
  • Be representative of all of what is now called New Brunswick and the people who live here.
  • As well as providing a functional space to house and conserve the collection well into the future, the new facility will be a quality, appropriate, and standout piece of iconic architecture.

In short, a renewed New Brunswick Museum will be top of mind for visitors and key to the future evolution of the province. While the Museum is funded in part by the Province of New Brunswick, additional support is needed from donors, funders, members, and sponsors to allow us to continue to build on our record of excellence with world-class collections, research, galleries, programs and exhibitions at the New Brunswick Museum.
