A contemporary space. A creative community to inspire artists, residents, and visitors. Artist-led and artist-focused.
The Convent/Ta’n etl-mawita’mk is located in Sydney, Unama'ki (Cape Breton Island), and features 21 private artist studios, a large Open Studio with 22 artist work spaces, the Better Bite Café and Community Kitchen, Meals on Wheels, and four anchor tenants – the Nova Scotia Community College Music Arts Program, Celtic Colours International Festival, The Coast 89.7 FM Radio Station, and Nova Stream.
Our private studios are currently at capacity. Please contact us at [email protected] to be added to the waitlist or reach out if you are a visiting or traveling artist to learn more about booking our flex studio. We will be opening more desk workspaces in the Open Studio once we enter Phase 5 of the Nova Scotia reopening plan for Covid-19.
