Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy: keeping Nova Scotia's coastline safe, accessible.
Our Mission: To conserve and protect shoreline, wetlands, beaches, freshwater habitats, fields and forests, and to ensure that access to these places, both on Kingsburg peninsula and in neighbouring areas, remains available to the public forever.
We have a couple of exciting announcements to share:
KCC Arts Grant
The Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy (KCC) is excited to announce the receipt of a commissioning grant from Arts Nova Scotia. The project is called Land as Art: A meeting of conservation and creation.
The KCC will commission three south shore artists to create land art. The artists are: Don Pentz, a well-known and accomplished painter; Andrew Maize, a conceptual artist currently working with the new Lunenburg School of the Arts; and, Mariëtte Roodenburg, a photographer whose luminous photographs are exhibited internationally. The artists will work directly on the beautiful Kingsburg peninsula to create art out of natural materials found in the landscape. Although the art will be temporary, the project will be documented by Ms. Roodenburg and shared online.
We will keep you posted on this wonderful project!
