Twillingate and area is rich in culture, history and arts - visual arts, performing arts, literature and a growing digital arts sector. The arts in Twillingate has always drawn from the wonderful stories, landscapes and history of this quaint location.
In support of a Twillingate's arts and culture sector that has been hard hit during the Covid-19 pandemic, Grow Twillingate started working on a Digital Arts and Culture Strategy project with the support of the Canada Council of the Arts.
Currently the project is in a research phase and a dedicated group of Twillingate artists, musicians and museum curators are helping to co-create what will eventually be a digital arts and culture strategy for the community.
In December a group of 12 people came together to start the process in day-long workshop. This was followed with two more online workshops that talked about the future of arts and culture in Twillingate and a series of individual interviews with artists, industry organizations, festival organizers and museum curators.
The final Twillingate Arts and Culture Digital Strategy Report will be available in June 2021.
