Pin-In Submissions / Eastern Edge

As the first artist-run centre for visual arts in Newfoundland & Labrador, Eastern Edge remains committed to exhibiting contemporary Canadian art, as well as encouraging dedicated, rigorous activity locally. Through the strong curatorial focus of its programming, Eastern Edge continues to facilitate the critical dialogue surrounding issues in contemporary art and society, acting as analyst and activist within this society. Eastern Edge offers support, skills development, a sense of community, information and resource-sharing, and a meaningful context for artistic activity.
