Cape Breton Island, rich in natural beauty, relishes in its abundance of artists and creativity – painters, sculptors, musicians, actors, dancers, designers, developers, photographers, and cinematographers, writers and story tellers. The Convent aspires to provide a welcoming place in which artists can collaborate, work, develop and hone their craft, and share their work with local and visiting public in an affordable and modern facility. The Convent provides both private studio rentals ($270/month) and work spaces in a large open shared studio ($95-$220/month). Building also has 24/7 access for tenants, cafe/kitchen, event and meeting spaces, and is universally accessible.
