Instructors will offer lessons in arts, entrepreneurship, environment, cooking, dance, music, photography, writing, and much more.

Our goal is to bring the local arts, culture and innovation together with international talent, and  stimulate the local economy with stronger cultural based initiatives.

The centre will host:

Our philosophy is to create lasting relationships through unique learning experiences. The programming is complimented by an environmental mandate  – solar water heating, rain water recapture, organic farming, composting – that is essential to respecting the natural beauty of the island.
