Emerging Artist Residency Program
Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design offers an Emerging Artist Residency program for emerging artists in ceramics, textiles, printmaking and metal/jewellery who have graduated from a craft program in the last five years.
At Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design, participants in the emerging artist residency, will be given access to equipped shared studio space, in ceramics, metal/jewellery, or textiles, in exchange for community involvement. Emerging Artists are also expected to spend one day a week hosting an open studio day, where they will act as studio technician for their respective studios: maintaining the studio and assisting community members currently enrolled in classes. This residency is a yearlong commitment.
