The Nova Scotia Talent Trust (NSTT) recently announced the creation of a new $1100 award. The award is for existing scholarship recipients who demonstrate exceptional commitment and potential in dance. Made possible through the donation of the late Robert George Jackson and his widow, Daphne Cruikshanks, the fund will be presented at December’s annual NSTT Special Awards ceremony; an event that further acknowledges artists who have already been successful with either the Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter scholarships. Established in 1944, the NSTT is a not-for-profit organization that provides scholarships to developing Nova Scotian artists in dance, music, theatre, visual arts, literary arts and film. www.nstalenttrust.ns.ca
