ABOUT THE OLD SCHOOL

Located in a Heritage building in Musquodoboit Harbour, the Old School is a Centre for Arts, Culture and Innovation. Built in the 1920’s, it functioned as a school until 2006, when pupils were transferred to a new school. Eventually, the community acquired the building and, in 2011, it was designated an Historic Property. The Old School is now used by the community as a hub for musical performances, arts and culture, meetings, and an Art Gallery.

The Art Gallery promotes and sells the work of local artists. Our music program features local musicians at the House Concerts and Coffee Houses. Space is available for local community members and entrepreneurs of all ages to meet, collaborate and attend workshops.

Included in our capacity is Eastern Shore Mental Health- a peer-based mental health support for residents on the Eastern Shore, and the Musquodboit Harbour Community Garden that supports community gardeners and helps with food security on the Eastern Shore.
