Community Studio Residency

NSCAD University offers residency programs for recent grads in four sites through Nova Scotia. Participation in a residency program is regarded as an ideal way to launch or continue an artistic practise after graduation from NSCAD: giving alumni artists the physical space—not to mention the headspace—to work. Prime studio space is offered in exchange for community involvement, whether that’s holding community workshops for adults or leading classes for school kids. Residents are expected to be active participants in their host communities by engaging town residents in the visual arts through exhibitions, receptions and guest lectures.

We are now accepting applications for 2017/2018. The deadline for applications is March 3, 2017 at 5:00pm.
