NSCAD Career Week 2023

This week (March 21-24th) is NSCAD Career Week! Each day there is at least one talk or workshop in-person in the Learning Commons and available online as Zoom webinars.


Students can learn how to apply for residencies, write artist statements and bios, learn from working artists (mostly Alumni!) on how to start small businesses, support creative production, participate in pop-up markets, sell their work online, and more.

This is a great opportunity to incorporate and enrich student’s career development skills into current curriculum and learning outcomes. Instructors are encouraged to bring classes down to the events in the Learning Commons, or join online. Zoom links can be found below, or at
