The Blue Cabin is a mobile artist residency, transformed from its previous incarnation as an artist studio for artist, musician, and writer Al Neil and artist Carole Itter near Cates Park. We host several artists-in-residence annually which include public programs, as well as a variety of other public engagement opportunities exploring the region’s foreshore history and the communities connected to it. Learn more about our artist residency program here.
