From Visual Arts to Architecture - Talent Trust Scholarship and Award Winner Isaac Fresia

Talent Trust scholarship and award winner Isaac Fresia.

Isaac Fresia understands the impact of the arts on our lives and communities. He’s one of seven scholarship recipients who appear in our 75th anniversary scholarship campaign video.

Isaac first received a Talent Trust scholarship in 2011 to support his studies in visual arts at NSCAD University. He won the Talent Trust Charlotte Wilson-Hammond/Visual Arts Nova Scotia Award that same year.

While pursuing his undergraduate degree, he received the NSCAD University Margo and Rowland Marshall Award, and the Talent Trust RBC Emerging Artist Award in 2013. He graduated with his BFA in 2014.

Isaac’s skills and interests led him to pursue studies in architecture at Dalhousie University. He received Talent Trust scholarships to support his education in 2016 and 2018. He received the Talent Trust 2011 Canada Games Award in 2015.

Isaac is currently working toward a Master of Architecture.

Isaac’s awareness of the connection between his studies in visual art and architecture will serve him well in his profession. He also knows, firsthand, what scholarships mean to emerging artists. 

“We work not in isolation but together as advocates, social workers, and cultural intermediaries. We are privileged in our professions to build good cities and foster better communities. Your investment in my education has been an investment in these values, an investment that I intend to pay forward to the generations that follow me.”

We’d like to thank Isaac for being part of our 75th anniversary scholarship campaign video. We’d also like to thank his family for generously allowing us to use their farm for the shoot.
