Rehearsals are on, eco-project happening, camps filling up, and Canada Day coming up!

Rehearsals for Animal Farm & Vanya well underway!

Canning  N.S.-  The halls of Ross Creek are ringing with the sounds of singing and sewing as composer Allen Cole works the musical sections of Animal Farm with the cast, and designer Jennifer Goodman evokes nineteenth centre Russia through her exquisite costumes for North Mountain Vanya. The team assembled is having a great time on the mountain and preparing for the opening of both shows on July 7.

Stay tuned for information and biographies of the cast and crew, and help us welcome these artists to our community!

THE FIREFLY ECO CABIN PROJECT!

We are thrilled to welcome artist and designer Julien Jodoin-Eng back to Ross Creek. He has been here as a volunteer over the past two years, working toward this new project: to build sustainable accommodation for artists at Ross Creek, inspired by our programs, our landscape, and our campus. Julien is now raising funds to build the eco-cabin as a working model for other sustainable buildings in in the future. If you can support this project, you can get cool benefits and also contribute to Ross Creek infrastructure!

See his video about the project, and contribute by July 24 to make it happen!!
