The Nina: RBC Emerging Artist Program

Hosted by Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts

This exciting opportunity is available to artists transitioning from a senior artistic program to a professional artistic career. Four to six apprenticeship opportunities will be awarded to emerging artists who are attending or have recently graduated from post secondary arts programs.

The successful candidates will take part in a 14 week program consisting of 5 hours a week on Thursdays from May to August 2021 at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts (and/or over Zoom) where they will gain valuable experience and skills to bridge them towards their professional artistic careers.

The accepted apprentices will receive certificates, an honorarium, exhibitions of their work in Edmonton City Centre and the Stollery Gallery, and sit in on professional panels and workshops. This is made possible through the RBC Emerging Artist Program.

Since it was founded in 2003, the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts has been home to one of Edmonton’s most interesting art collectives, made up entirely of artists with developmental disabilities. What began as a collective of one has grown to include over 200 members. Their work is exhibited locally and across Canada, and has been included in international exhibitions.
