DEADLINE: 11:59pm May 31, 2024

Parks Canada in collaboration with Unama’ki Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design offers an annual Artist-in-Residence Program. Located on Cape Breton’s spectacular Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, with access to some of Nova Scotia’s most breath- taking hiking trails, beaches and picturesque communities, the program offers professional artists the fantastic opportunity to live and work within a unique environment and engage with local communities for a period of six (6) weeks, from October 1 – November 9, 2024.

The program is open to up to two (2) Canadian professional practicing artists working within visual art and craft mediums and/or public programming, with particular emphasis placed on community engaged practices. Applicants may apply as individuals, or as part of a joint proposal with one (1) additional artist/arts facilitator. While this is a chance to focus for a concentrated period on developing new projects, or work on existing projects in tranquil surroundings near the Atlantic Ocean, the participating artist(s) will be expected to provide public access and programming opportunities for the community throughout their stay.
