A contemporary space. A creative community to inspire artists, residents, and visitors. Artist-led and artist-focused.
Eltuek (el-du-eg) is a Mi’kmaw word that means “We are making (it) together.” The (it) refers to whatever it is (we) decide to make - art, ideas, music, community, social change. Eltuek Arts Centre is accessible, inclusive, and continuous.
Eltuek Arts Centre is in Sydney, Unama'ki (Cape Breton Island). Eltuek features artist studios, Open Studio for shared artist workspaces, gallery and exhibition spaces, the Better Bite Café and Meals on Wheels, Nova Scotia Community College Music Arts Program, Celtic Colours International Festival, NovaStream, and The Coast 89.7 FM Radio Station.
Our private studios are currently at capacity. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waitlist. We will be opening more desk workspaces in the Open Studio in 2022.
