Take our NEW Workshop Survey

Visual Arts Nova Scotia offers professional development workshops to artists across the province based on feedback from members and artists. These workshops focus on professional development in support of the artist’s creative practice across commercial and public sectors. For our 40th Anniversary we want offer new formats for our workshops and we would value your input.

Do you want to take more webinars? Maybe a boot camp for artists? Let us know what you would like to see VANS offer by clicking on the link and completing the Spring 2017 Workshop Survey. Help us to program workshops near you by forwarding this survey to artists and groups in your area. The survey takes less than three minutes to complete and helps us to build programming based on the needs expressed by artists and art organizations provincially. Deadline to complete the survey is March 20, 2017. Thanks for your help!
