Atlantic

Empowering Canada’s rural, Indigenous, and underserved
communities through music and the arts.

Music Alive Atlantic was launched in 2017 through some significant events with local partners, including a Young Artist Summit for Indigenous Musicians, an urban songwriting project, and interactive musician visits for rural schools. We look forward to building on these relationships and collaborating with artists in Atlantic Canada!

It was such privilege to be part of this amazing and life changing gathering of musicians. The outreach and organization since the time I been involved in this event was well thought out and lead with such openness of creating an inviting and safe space for learning and sharing for a group of Indigenous Artists meeting for the first time. Collaboration was the biggest topic in this group. Everyone wanted to work on creating together.  And that was the beautiful magical part of this gathering.  The friendship that was built in such a short period time was amazing to witness.
