NSCAD Art Factory

The goal of the Art Factory program is to enhance art education to at-risk, marginalized, and under-represented populations, while providing valuable, cultural-sector employment, training, and community engagement opportunities to NSCAD Students. The NSCAD Art Factory makes art accessible to all. The Art factory brings the community into NSCAD, and extends NSCAD into the greater community through outreach and innovation.

Our programs provide senior students (3rd-4th year with with a strong understanding of their medium and its processes) paid training, support and mentorship in workshop development and delivery. The Art Factory provides a unique opportunity to access NSCAD University’s professional equipment and facilities of community members. Through mutually beneficial community engagement, Extended Studies works to connect with community and foster curiosity for art, making and learning.
