Working toward a more diverse creative economy

Creativity flourishes in culturally safe environments where diversity of thought and lived experience is recognized, encouraged and celebrated. Together we can work toward a more diverse representation within Nova Scotia’s creative economy through access to education. By encouraging and supporting students from communities under-represented in the sector, we can have a lasting impact.

The Spark Creativity Student Bursary Fund

The Spark Creativity Student Bursary Fund, established by NSCC’s School of Business and Creative Industries, is designed to make a difference. 100% of donations made will fund bursaries for students from communities under-represented in the creative sector, helping them to pursue Creative Industries programming at NSCC. Our students have a direct line to industry with 83% of graduates finding employment in their area of study.

Student and Alumni Showcase

Don't miss Spark Creativity 2024 on May 23 at the Lighthouse Arts Centre in Halifax. This event highlights the talents of students and alumni from our Creative Industries programs and celebrates the vibrant future of Nova Scotia's creative economy. Get your tickets here.

Last year's fundraising efforts culminated with the inaugural event, funding 11 scholarships for students from communities underrepresented in the creative sector. Read more about Spark Creativity's success in 2023.
