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 our prosperity and quality of life.


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?


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.

See Our Programs


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.

We are constantly developing new initiatives to promote collaboration within the creative sector, with other industry sectors and with the wider PEI community.

Our Latest News


We acknowledge that the land on which we operate is the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq Peoples. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq Peoples first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations. We recognize that true reconciliation is an ongoing process. Acknowledging territory and First Peoples should take place within the larger context of genuine and ongoing work to forge real understanding, and to challenge the legacies of colonialism.
