It is the intent of the our Artist-in-Residence program to provide a space for emerging artists, including recent graduates, to enable them to develop and enhance their practice in their chosen medium. Applications will be reviewed and selections awarded by a committee comprised of directors of our School. The program will host two artists each year, one in each of our two terms:
Fall Term: September 12, 2022 to December 16, 2022.
Application Deadline: March 31, 2022
All fall term applicants will receive notice on their application status by end of April, 2022.
Winter Term: February 13, 2023 to May 19, 2023
Application Deadline: August 31, 2022
All winter term applicants will receive notice on their application status by September 30, 2022.
The Artist-in-Residence will have 24-hour access to an independent studio space at the Lunenburg School of the Arts located in the heart of Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, a UNESCO World Heritage site and hub for arts, culture, and music.
The Artist-in-Residence will receive a stipend of $500.00 (CDN) per month and is responsible for her/his own material costs and sourcing. This program is a studio only residency; the Artist-in-Residence is responsible for her/his own living and travel arrangements and expenses. The School may collaborate with the Artist-in-Residence to publish a companion catalogue to the work created.
