Introduction

A creative space in the country, dedicated to nurturing community in the arts. If you have a project in mind -- music, film, or photography -- or wish to help artists in their development, please stop in for a visit and we'll have a conversation.   We are located in the beautiful Lakeland region of Alberta, on an acreage, 30 minutes drive north of Vermilion (Hwy 16 and 41).

Mentoring

We welcome projects and partnerships which offer opportunities for artists -- young and old -- to develop their skills.  we sponsor Workshops in music, film, & radio-drama.

 

Anna's Goodbye is a 20 minute dramatic film produced at a camp in Alberta.  Students were trained in technical aspects of production, dramatic interpretation, and played most of the roles in the story.  Students also worked alongside to assist professional directors and cinematographers to watch and learn.  An original music score was composed by various musicians, and mixed at Northern Rain.
