About Camber Arts
Camber Arts (formerly Gros Morne Summer Music) began in 2003 as a classical chamber music festival held in the summer in Gros Morne National Park (hence the name). Over the past eighteen years, a restless spirit of exploration has evolved this little operation into a year-round interarts company that works across four major areas of activity:
Presentation -- we present artists to our region, with an emphasis on diverse cultural experiences;
Creation -- we develop creative projects that reflect the region’s cultural richness;
Innovation -- we lead national initiatives with
partners such as Banff Centre (Alberta) and the Metcalf Foundation (Toronto) on a range of innovation
challenges, currently digital arts, social finance, and social impact strategies and methods;
Education -- The Graham Academy is our
training and mentorship program for youth in Western Newfoundland, and was nominated for
community service awards for our pandemic response;
We are a close and highly collaborative collection of staff, board of directors, and broader community all coming together through this organization to ask a simple question:
What kind of arts organization does our world need now?
Camber Arts respectfully acknowledges the territory in which we gather as the ancestral homelands of the Beothuk, and the island of Newfoundland as the ancestral homelands of the Mi’kmaq and Beothuk. We would also like to recognize the Inuit of Nunatsiavut and Nunatukavut and the Innu of Nitassinan, and their ancestors, as the original people of Labrador.
