Community Studio Residency

Community Studio Residency

NSCAD University offers residency programs for recent grads, and - at times - current students 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 emerging 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, every residency has different expectations. 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.
