Nova Scotia Talent Trust Upcoming Scholarship Application Deadline:

May 1, 2020
(for studies between September 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021)

For more information, go to nstalenttrust.ca


Message from our Scholarship Program Coordinator Jackie Dowling:

Given the importance of maintaining social/physical distancing, and possible self-isolation for some, we understand that meeting some of the application requirements for the Fall/Winter scholarship deadline will not be possible. For example, it may not be possible to record your videos in a studio/theatre or to have someone accompany you for your music piece.

Please know we will be understanding of these limitations and will welcome modifications (filming in your living room, solo performances rather than being accompanied, etc.). We do hope that you do your best to meet the requirements that are within your control. For example, one merged video, artistic statement, multiple dance elements, etc.

Also, remember that if you submitted an application for the 2020 Spring/Summer deadline you can use the same support material: video, portfolio, writing samples, or film links.

In addition, we here at NSTT know how important the arts are in times like these. We are seeing, now more than ever, on social media how various forms of arts can bring people together (while remaining apart! and can bring hope, calm and healing to others.

And as always, please be in touch if you have any questions!

Kindly,
Jackie Dowling

Canadians asked to wear red for N.S. shooting victims to unite the country Friday, April 24 at 2pm

Canadians from coast to coast are being asked to pause Friday in a day of mourning to honour the victims killed in Nova Scotia’s mass shooting.

The National Police Federation (NPF), in partnership with the RCMP, is asking citizens to stop what they’re doing on Friday at 2 p.m. AT, and observe a moment of silence while wearing red.

People are asked to step outside and line up on the sidewalk or edge of a road — if possible —while practising physical distancing, and observe a moment of silence for the tragic events.

Those who participate can also share photos and videos of themselves in red using the hashtag #WearRedFriday.
