Our newsletter delivers all of the latest news from our organization and our sector.
What is our vision?
Flourishing arts, culture and creative industries are essential to the ongoing prosperity and quality of life of Prince Edward Island.
ATTRACTING TOP TALENT
In today’s competitive global labour marketplace, talented people seek out a vibrant arts scene and a creative community where bold new ideas and excellence are celebrated.
Arts, culture and creative industries contribute $123.2 million directly to PEI’s economy. They also contribute millions more indirectly as drivers of tourism and provincial branding.
A more creative society infused with optimism is empowered to find solutions to its biggest challenges in areas like education, healthcare and the environment.
What do we do?
PROGRAMS AND INITIATIVES
We partner with a wide range of sector organizations and funders to create and deliver skills development programs in three broad areas: professional skills, entrepreneurship and creativity.
We research labour market and business issues in the creative sector. We also gather research from other sources and make it available here on our website.
