New Emerging Artist Residencies,  deadline January 15!

Thanks to the assistance of a generous pair of artist angels and the Sobey Foundation, the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts is granting free spaces in its residency program to emerging artists or recent graduates in the arts from any community and artistic discipline. We intend this to be an opportunity for emerging artists who are within 5 years of their graduation from a recognized postsecondary arts program, or for artists under 25 who have chosen a different educational path. January 15 deadline. Click here to find out more!

Regular residencies for artists of all disciplines and nationalities - we have rolling deadlines, so email to find out if we have openings.  Click here for details.

NEW: Paying it Forward Bursaries!

We are thrilled that some wonderful donors have donated funding for bursaries which allow young people to attend our Summer and March Break programs.Those bursary applications are online now here. In the spirit of community-building, they have asked that when you receive a bursary, you also do something nice for someone else – take time to visit someone, make some soup or cookies for a neighbour, whatever makes sense to you and if you can or are willing, send us a picture or a little note to let us know what you did to pay it forward and what the bursary means to you. If you have received bursaries in the past, and you were thrilled for your family, drop us a line here and let us know. It all makes the world a better place!
