A CREATIVE OASIS
Imagine sitting in a comfortable chair, leafing through the latest issue of Canadian Art while sipping an espresso, watching a gentle snow fall on a cold, lazy day. A conversation about social justice is taking place, Ella Fitzgerald is playing on the stereo and a photographer is showing a visitor some of his latest portraits. Wow, this is so cool you think, can I live here? Welcome to A Place for the Arts in Bancroft Art Co-op!
We are a group of like minded people who enjoy and create art, and share a fabulous space downtown Bancroft. Lucky for us, one of our members has superb barista skills and opened a cappuccino bar in the space, now operated by lovely Magda and Marion. In early summer of 2015 we welcomed Community Trust into A Place. This organization provides help to the folks around town that need it most. Together, we want A Place for the Arts to grow into the community hub we know we can create, a space that welcomes anyone with a desire to connect with the creative community.
