New Office Location-Coming Soon

We are excited to announce that late this spring, 4e will open a Studio/Office space in Kagawong. We had quite a few proposals from communities and organizations around the Island - we thank everyone for their enthusiasm and support. After careful consideration of our needs, the proposals and our organizational goals, we have chosen Kagawong because of the fantastic relationship we built with the community during the time of the Art of Being Billings Project, because of the Council's enthusiasm and vision, and of course, because of the space.  In addition to being connected to a vibrant community, we'll have room for offices as well as a small workshop/studio/gallery space. We will continue our various community programs and organizational partnerships throughout the Island. If you have an idea for a project, a workshop for your community, or are an artist looking for opportunities to teach, do contact us.
