Montague - One of the most ambitious revitalization projects in recent years is set to launch on Montague’s Main Street. Beginning this Saturday (16 June), strollers will be able to chat with creative professionals while watching them at work, and admire a renovated street front featuring window displays, banners, and outdoor benches.

A team of stakeholders ranging from landlords and artists, Eastern Prince Edward Island Chamber of Commerce and Montague Town Council, and other interested volunteers have worked on the project for several months, to breathe new life into the town’s attractiveness for residents and visitors. Inspiring the Artisan community to collaborate towards the creation of a new Artisan Co-operative for this region where the Artisan is the passion driving the project in partnership with community support resources.

Highlights of the pilot project include the Main Street Artisans Gallery, a Production Studio featuring local artisans at work producing works or conducting classes, and an Artisan Boutique for those wishing to purchase unique island made treasures, jewellery, sea crafts, oil paintings, nautical photos, quilts and more.
