WHO ARE WE?

The Old School Community Gathering Place is a hub for the arts, culture, community wellness and innovation. A non-profit cooperative, we are based in a Craftsman-style heritage building built in 1924, Musquodoboit Harbour’s former community school. We offer accessible programming to an intergenerational audience, with projects ranging from a youth employment experience program and several cultural programs, to community music jams, a French conversation group and Tai Chi. Special events include themed dances, musical performances, and festivals.

Explore our programming through our website, contact us or drop by to learn more about what we can offer.

Covid 19 Protocols in place, masks and distancing required.
