Scottish Makers Invited to Note Interest for Canadian Exchange Programme 2019/20

Applied Arts Scotland (AAS) and Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) are delighted to invite Notes of Interest from Scottish makers who would like to participate in Shift Canada 2019/20, an exchange programme bringing together Scottish and Canadian makers to create new works which respond to Identity, Sustainability and/or Collaboration.



The model for this project will be based on Emergent’s Shift Icelandic exchange programme that took place in 2017/18 and successfully brought Scottish and Icelandic makers together to create new work, both collaboratively and individually, and to explore new products, processes, markets and techniques.

For 2019/20 we will bring Scottish and Canadian makers together three times; at a residency in Nova Scotia in the autumn of 2019; and the Scottish Highlands in Spring 2020; and for an exhibition and symposium in July 2020. This final meeting will bring together both Shift and other strands of AAS’s international work in Mexico and Thailand to celebrate the new connections and work made through this and the other projects.

Further information and how to note interest can be downloaded below,  if you have any difficulties doing this please email and request a copy.

Deadline for noting interest: 5pm, Friday 12 July 2019.
