Art of the Possible

Art of the Possible: Envisioning a bright future for Entrepreneurship & Experiential Learning (E&EL) programming for NS students in the Humanities, Social Sciences, Languages and Performing/Creative Arts.

One quarter of the post-secondary students in Nova Scotia are in the arts, and it is widely held by industry thinkers that the skills that these students graduate with—critical thinking, creativity, social perceptiveness, and problem-solving—are a match to the 21st-century workplace. Yet this category of students has been underserved by experiential learning opportunities. This capacity-building project is a province-wide initiative to address this shortfall and put in place the building blocks of a robust E&EL strategy that will serve students in the arts and support their transition to the work force in Nova Scotia.

This project is funded through the NS Post-Secondary Innovation Team of the Department of Labour and Advanced Education. The scope of the work of the project manager has been outlined in a project proposal developed collaboratively by representatives from regional universities and the NSCC. King’s is pleased to host the incumbent on behalf of the regional steering committee. Our commitment to this project is part of a larger program of work at King’s to expand and enhance experiential learning opportunities for students in our humanities degree programs.
