The Arts House
'A Space to Create'

The Arts House has been opened as a place to experience all things art.  It is a gathering place and home for all of those people who are passionate about creating and those who are learning how to create. Our aim is to support local artists in our community for generations to come and to build Antigonish as the cultural hub of eastern Nova Scotia. 

The Arts House opened its doors for its first programming in the summer of 2018. As an exciting new endeavour, taken up by the team working at the Antigonish Art Fair, this space is a product of thousands of hours of volunteer time by numerous artists and organizers who are determined to provide the resources for a flourishing artistic community.  During the months of July and August 2018, The Arts House ran children’s art and pottery camps. These first class courses were taught by experienced and passionate artists and instructors. This fall, we are continuing and expanding our programming into exciting and innovative avenues.

Our dream is to have a home for the arts in our community that will continue to grow in years to come. If you are interested in art, in learning how to paint, dance, sculpt, and create please see our available courses and get involved. We welcome you to The Arts House and to the community of artists and organizers involved in this space.
