Career Development

PLEASE NOTE to make allowance for the current working conditions imposed by the pandemic and to take advantage of online training opportunities, criteria relaxation for the Arts by Invitation (*NEW*), the Professional Development and Professionalization & Promotion components are still in effect. Please have a look at the recent update regarding the criteria relaxation of Career Developement components here.

The Career Development program is designed to recognize and encourage arts professionals who have demonstrated exceptional artistic talent and potential, and who are pursuing a career in the arts. The program is divided in four components:

  • The Arts by Invitation component is for assistance to present work by invitation in established arts events.
  • The Artist in Residence component is for assistance for participation in residency opportunities of three (3) months and less. The artists in residence are to contribute to the promotion and understanding of the arts by means of the artists’ contact with the clientele of the establishments.
  • The Professional Development component is for assistance for professional development scholarships for studies and mentorships.
  • The Professionalization and Promotion component is designed to assist artists to produce tools related to the promotion of the artist’s work and career with a view to broadening the dissemination network for their work and diversifying their sources for funding.
