The Summer Professional Development Residency at The Centre For Craft Nova Scotia is designed to suit emerging, pre-professional and self-directed artists who need time and space to develop a body of work while exploring individual style and technique. Our studios’ close proximity encourages sharing, collaboration and cross-craft exploration among the residents. The Residency is open to advanced students and recent graduates looking for their next opportunity and guidance into the art/craft world. Each resident works for the summer towards a project to be exhibited in the Mary E. Black Gallery and it never fails to be a groundbreaking show.
We respectfully acknowledge that The Mary E. Black Gallery and the Centre For Craft Nova Scotia are situated in Mi’kma’ki, which is the unceded territory of Mi’kmaq people.
