CreativePEI is leading a process to establish a new Creative Hub for PEI. Imagine a vibrant and collaborative space in Charlottetown, PEI, where individuals and organizations from a range of arts and creative disciplines can build their skills, create, collaborate and innovate.

Potential sites for the Creative Hub are currently being evaluated and CreativePEI is now launching a Request for Expressions of Interest for artists and creative professionals; arts, cultural and community organizations; creative businesses; and potential project and program partners. If you are interested in renting space, participating in programming or partnering in the Hub development, we want to hear from you!

A full description of the project and information on how to prepare and submit an Expression of Interest is available in the REOI Document. Prior to submitting an Expression of Interest, interested parties are strongly encouraged to review this document in its entirety.

To submit a Statement of Interest, please complete this online form.

    This may not be the case with the Creative Hub. However, in my experience over the decades I’ve found that these types of initiatives are fairly elitist. Meaning that they are geared to people with a certain income and not accessible for people who don’t have money or the money to create. They are not supportive or CREATIVE in terms of creating spaces that allow for single parents with children to participate. When I was a young woman in my early 20s, in 30s, in my 40s and now in my 50s, I tried to participate in these kinds of initiatives in Victoria, BC; Vancouver, PEI (in the mid-90s to 2001 and again since I returned in 2013), Central Alberta, Halifax and the Sunshine Coast, BC and never did get involved because they weren’t accessible to my single-parent-little money status, or they didn’t feel welcoming because they were all White organizations/members/income brackets or they aren’t accessible physically. It’s pretty much that way with a lot of the art initiatives of all types in the 40 years. There are some brilliant creative people from youths to seniors who don’t have the opportunities to participate because they don’t have the income, or they don’t feel welcomed.

  • Hi Stephanie. Thanks for your important comment. We at CreativePEI are determined that the hub will not be elitist. Our firm intent is to make it affordable and welcoming to anyone pursuing an arts practice or a career as a creative professional.

    I would love for there to be rental equipment available at little to no cost, especially photography equipment since it is an artistic medium that often requires spending lots of money to get started. Lighting, lenses, studio space… It could be a fantastic opportunity to get people who wouldn’t normally have disposable income involved in the art of photography.

  • Mark from CreativePEI here. We have simplified the Expression of Interest form. If you have already started completing the old form, you can still send it to us. But if you want to start over using the new form, that’s fine too. The old forms can be sent to jeff.moore@mrsbgroup.com
