CulturePEI is a leader and voice for the cultural industry, and exists to improve the outcomes and incomes of cultural workers. We’re a not-for-profit sector council dedicated to strengthening the cultural sector by addressing human resource needs and identifying solutions.

We strive to support the needs of employers and employees within the following cultural disciplines: writing & publishing, crafts, digital & media arts, film & television, visual arts, music & sound recording, performing arts, and museums, libraries, archives & heritage.

We engage with governments, businesses, and educational centres to help grow the skills of cultural workers and to help grow the creative economy. We host and coordinate public events to facilitate the discussion of knowledge, research and tools about and for the cultural sector.

We collaborate with other agencies, not-for-profits and other groups to elevate the profile of the cultural sector, and help introduce the Island community to cultural careers. We enhance the profile of culture and the creative economy by communicating with community, industry and business leaders and Island media.

We work to ensure appropriate developmental opportunities exist for aspiring and current cultural worker, and that this training matches what cultural employers and employees need.

We pool all available data on cultural skills’ education, training & workshops and make this information available on our website.
