Great Island Arts Co-op


The Great Island Arts Co-operative (est. 2016) is a non-profit organization that facilitates a multi-disciplinary artist residency program on a remote island off the South Shore of Nova Scotia. We seek to support artists to share skills and resources, learn from each other, and collectively empower one another in their creative practices. We seek to critically engage with our presence on ancestral and unceded Mi’kmaw territory, and we encourage non-indigenous artists in residence to do the same.
