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 8, 2020 to December 15, 2020.
    Application Deadline: March 15, 2020
    All fall term applicants will receive notice on their application status by the end of April 2020.
  • Winter Term: February 14, 2021 to May 15, 2021
    Application Deadline: August 15, 2020
    All winter term applicants will receive notice on their application status by the end of September 2020.

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.

A public exhibition of the work completed here by the Artist-in-Residence will be held at the end of the term at the School, together with a reception hosted by the School. At this event the Artist-in-Residence is expected to give an ‘Artist Talk’ in relation to the work she/he has completed during the term.
