The Talent Trust supports artists of all disciplines in their formative years with scholarships and special awards. In 2017 we were able to support 49 Nova Scotia emerging artists. Congratulations to all!
Scholarships make a significant difference in the lives of these emerging artists as Rebecca Wolfe from Dartmouth told us:
I am honoured to receive a Talent Trust scholarship for the second time. Your continued support means the world to me. It is very difficult making ends meet living away from home and going to school.
The scholarship I have received will ease my mind about financials during this upcoming school year and will allow me to focus on my studies at Humber College’s Theatre Performance Program.
Rebecca Wolfe is in her second year studying Theatre Performance at Humber College, Toronto.
The Talent Trust has awarded $80,000 in scholarships to emerging Nova Scotian artists in the fields of dance, theatre, media (film) studies, music, visual and literary arts. This is a $5,000 increase from previous years. This increase is only possible because of supporters and individual donors like you. Thank you!
Donate today to support these wonderful Nova Scotian artists.
Thank you for believing in the Creativity of Nova Scotians.
