Description & Services
Information The Parrsboro Creative Arts Association is an initiative by a group of concerned citizens to revitalize the Town of Parrsboro and turn back years of slow decline due to the cumulative effects of lost economic drivers resulting from centralization, globalization and the resulting depopulation of rural communities. The establishment of a vital multidisciplinary arts community is seen as the key in the development of a vibrant cultural economy. The fundamental focus of Parrsboro Creative is the establishment of major foundation blocks:  
1. The Cultural Campus offering a curriculum in a unique range of cultural and artistic disciplines.  
2. The Parrsboro International Plein Air Festival, one of the largest international plein air painting competitions in Canada for artists, held with spectacular views of the Minas Basin and Bay of Fundy.  
3. The Creative Artist Attraction Program inviting artists to live and work here with preliminary support such as legal resources and financial assistance. 
4. The Artist-in-Residence program attracting artists from across North America for short-duration stays.. 
Mission Statement  
To create a vibrant artist and artisan community that will spearhead the rejuvenation and repopulation of Parrsboro with established regional, national and international artists and artisans working in a wide variety of disciplines.
