Freethinking and independent at its soul, Newfoundland and Labrador has always been a breeding ground for the arts. When you combine our location at the most easterly point of North America, surrounded by whales, icebergs, rugged beauty and our unique culture, together with a people full of ingenuity and inventiveness you get a rich way of life expressed in colour, music and poetry.

Creativity is expressed in traditional art techniques handed down over generations and contemporary art bore through that unstilted desire to express. Our crafts are developed by molding our distinctive view of the world into jewellery and pottery using everything from moose antlers, to limestone and wool.

Our music drifts through the thickest fog banks, or carries along with the warm summer breezes, finding its way to your feet and hands until you’re dancing and singing in the space and freedom this place provides you. However it finds you, our music is an integral part of who we are and what you’ll become in Newfoundland and Labrador.
