This exciting opportunity is open to artists who are in the early stages of their visual or literary arts career. Four to six apprenticeship opportunities will be awarded to emerging artists.

The successful candidates will take part in a 14 week program (6 hours a week) from May to August at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts, where they will gain valuable experience and skills to bridge them towards their professional artistic careers. Activities will include facilitating workshops to share your artistic process with the artists we support and working on collaborative art projects with artists in the Nina Collective.

The accepted apprentices will receive certificates, an honorarium, and exhibitions of their work in Edmonton City Centre and the Stollery Gallery. They will also participate in professional development panels led by experienced career artists on topics such as documenting and installing work, grant applications, and more. This is made possible through the RBC Emerging Artist Program.
