Eltuek Naming Ceremony Media Kit

Eltuek Arts Centre is a creative cultural hub in the North End of Sydney, Unama’ki, Cape Breton Island. Eltuek features artist studios, an Open Studio for shared artist workspaces, gallery and exhibition spaces, the Better Bite Café and Community Kitchen, Meals on Wheels, Nova Scotia Community College Music Arts Program, Celtic Colours International Festival, The Coast 89.7 FM Radio Station, and NovaStream.

Eltuek Arts Centre supports artists by offering affordable working studios and accessible exhibition space. We work to create an environment for artists and the community that is engaged with contemporary art, and nurtures creation in a vibrant, supportive, and relevant way. We are artist-led and artist-focused.

We strongly believe in all the benefits of the arts to communities — their ability to transform places, give people hope, give people a new way to see themselves and the world, start conversations, connect, challenge, confront, bring joy, inspire with awe. To this end, we want to make the arts more visible — to give people a place to work, gather, and share through art and culture that is accessible and beautiful and inclusive.

Eltuek Arts Centre offers beautiful, bright, and affordable gathering and event spaces for rent to the community. We offer Indigenous, non-profit, and tenant rates in addition to our regular commercial rates. Our building is a fully accessible site – with barrier-free interior spaces and grounds, an elevator, universal washrooms, and signage in Mi’kmaq, English, and Braille. Revenues from these rentals help to subsidize spaces for artists and community members that are safe, affordable, and modern to explore, take risks, and advance their work. By joining us in our work, you are supporting the growth of the creative community in Unama’ki, Cape Breton Island.
