World-class instruction, awe-inspiring locations on the phenomenal Bay of Fundy.
In 2015, Parrsboro Creative started the initiative known as The Cultural Campus, offering creative courses in various art disciplines through a joint effort with artistic and cultural organizations on the Parrsboro Shore, also known as Cultural Campus Affiliates. Together we deliver an annual course calendar of programs in different facilities to showcase art, craft and culture in the one of the most beautiful areas found in Nova Scotia.
The Cultural Campus operates year-round and holds courses annually primarily from May to October.
Courses are organized as two- to four-day intensive, continuous learning programs with an instructor.
Workshops are organized as one-day focused programs with an instructor, showcasing certain techniques or topics of interest.
