Apply for VANS’ Subsidized Studio Program in Sydney!

Subsidized Studio Program in Sydney!

Visual Arts Nova Scotia’s Subsidized Studio Program is accepting applications from members for our space in downtown Sydney! Member artists can apply to rent studio space for 2 – 3 months from April 1, 2019 – November 31, 2019.

There is no expectation of work to be completed during the studio rental. It is an opportunity for an artist who may be new to working in an independent studio or an artist who has a specific project to work on and could use support to fund a short-term studio space.

Located on the 3rd floor of the New Dawn Centre for Social Innovation, 37 Nepean Street, Sydney, NS, the studio is 7′ x 10′ with partial dividers. Unfortunately, the studio space is only accessible by stairs. The artist will have 24/7 access to the building with the use of a key fob for exterior doors and their own key for the studio space. In addition to studio space, artists have access to a designated sink and space for cleanup, locker storage space outside of the studio, as well as a shared lounge/kitchenette.

Eligibility: VANS member. Over 19 years of age.

Cost to you: $50/month + key deposit (deposit will be returned at the end of the rental).

Deadline for applications: Monday, March 18, 2019.
