North Grenville is home to a diverse population of artists, performers, writers, artisans, and other creatives working in wide-ranging artistic fields and mediums. Many local artists are entrepreneurs operating businesses in the creative economy, providing services and education to our next generation of artists and performers. Arts and culture offer numerous social and economic benefits to our rural community; the most important benefit being a unique sense of place experienced by residents and visitors alike.
Supporting arts and culture is a key goal in the Municipality’s strategic plan; investing in developing creative events, art spaces and programs we continue to strengthen our distinct and connected community.
