Since the Mentorship Program’s inception in 2006, Visual Arts Nova Scotia has successfully paired emerging artists with established artists to take part in a 10-month mentorship. The Mentorship Program provides an exceptional opportunity for emerging artists to develop both their creative process and professional skills, thus building the foundation for a successful career in the visual arts. As a secondary outcome, the program offers established artists an opportunity to pass on their experience, resources, knowledge, and insight. For information on the program visit:

The program is also supported by the Nova Scotia Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage, the Halifax Regional Municipality, and The Craig Gallery.
