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 wonderful having an established, award-winning Indigenous artist present a workshop at John J. Sark School on Lennox Island First Nation. It was also amazing to have a young person who is an aspiring musician from the community be a helper for the afternoon. The experience for him is life changing. Thank you!!
