4elements Living Arts is a multidisciplinary, cross-cultural, non-profit arts organization on Manitoulin Island. We investigate and integrate relationships between landscape, creativity, and community, through research, arts creation, and community cultural and economic development.

What We Do


4elements Living Arts has developed complex community-engaged programs with multiple community partners. 4e integrates many elements into this work, such as arts/culture/food/land-use history.


4elements has offered artist residencies since 2012. If you would like to work with 4elements on an existing project, or design your own, please contact us.
