Fogo Island Art School Opening for Business

The Long Studio, Fogo Island, Newfoundland.

he Fogo Island Arts Corporation is a new contemporary art venue on the east coast of Canada.

The Arts Corporation runs two distinct yet complementary programs, the Residency program and the Production program. Both programs encourage dialogue between visiting artists and local people to share experiences and perceptions.

The Fogo Island Arts Corporation's mission to bring together local communities and the international art scene is reflected in the accommodations and work space provided to Residency Program participants. Striking new studios are being built at locations across the island. They are designed by acclaimed architect Todd Saunders. The first of these studios – the Long Studio – opened on June 2 2010.

Living spaces are provided in refurbished traditional homes located in nearby communities on the island.

More information is available at our website:
