Culture PEI Has a New Name

We have changed our name to CreativePEI to better reflect our commitment to empowering arts, culture and creative industry workers in Prince Edward Island. Worldwide, the term Creative Industries is being used to describe what we used to call the Cultural Sector. The name CreativePEI reflects an understanding that what we all have in common is using the creative process to make a living by creating, preserving and presenting works of the imagination. Our vision is of a province that brings creativity to bear on every aspect of life - a truly Creative PEI.

Huge thanks to Devon Strang for designing our amazing new website

Please note that we are switching over our emails to the new domain name. Executive Director, Mark Sandiford's email address is now Our old Culture PEI email addresses will continue to work for a couple of months while we transition.

HIVE Incubator Program On Hold

Funding changes at the federal level have prompted a redesign of CreativePEI's successful HIVE Youth Cultural Entrepreneurship Incubator Program. The HIVE will not be offered this winter to allow time to figure out how the program will work under the new funding guidelines. CreativePEI hopes to run the HIVE later in 2018.
