Free to Grow | Arts & Culture

Free thinking 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.

You’ll find creativity expressed in the most beautiful ways through our craftsmanship, art, poetry, and music, handed down over generations through that unstilted desire to express. Our crafts are developed by moulding 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, and carries along with the warm summer breezes, finding its way to your feet and hands until you’re dancing and singing with the infectious rhythms of fiddle, accordion, and bodhrán drum. From lively jigs to old Irish ballads, our music is an integral part of who we are and what you’ll become in Newfoundland and Labrador.
