About the Artists in Residence Program

The MacPhee Centre Artist-in-Residence Program gives artist a space to thrive and collaborate. The loft space at 50 Queen is home to three resident artists, two from the NSCAD Community Studio Residency year-long) and one Community MacPhee Centre Resident Artist (four-month).

The NSCAD Community Studio Residency program offers recent NSCAD University graduates the opportunity to develop their practice through donated studio space in a residency site within Nova Scotia. As part of the program, our residents work with community members and students to increase interest in the visual arts. At the MacPhee Centre, we are thrilled to host. For more information about this residency, click here.

The MacPhee Centre Community Resident Artist has the same goal, without the requirement of being a newly graduated NSCAD alum and is open to all art forms. The MacPhee Centre Resident Artist can be anyone who identifies as an artist and could use a studio space. Each year, there are three artists that hold this residency.

All resident artists are an integral part of the MacPhee Centre community. Artists teach weekly programs and put on community exhibits to showcase their artwork. For youth at the MacPhee Centre, there is an opportunity to learn from the artists.
