2022 Scholarship recipients and this year’s DAR events!

By Nicole Côté

The 2022 D’Arts et de rêves scholarship winners

In 2021, D’Arts et de rêves announced the establishment of an annual scholarship competition for each of the three disciplines supported by our organization. Each scholarship includes:

  • a three-week stay free of charge at our Sutton DAR Studios;
  • a $1500 bursary.

These scholarships are awarded each year to the best creative projects selected by our jury and it is with great pleasure that we announce the names of this year’s three lucky winners.
