The Sunshine Coast is home to the highest per capita population of artists and crafters in Canada.

With its stunning natural beauty it’s no wonder the Sunshine Coast has a thriving artistic community!  Follow the Purple Banner Flags (which artists hang on their studios to signal “We’re Open!”) from Langdale to Lund and take a self directed studio and gallery tour any time of year. Wherever you see a purple banner, the arts are at work. In many cases, but not always, the banner is an invitation to drop in. Please refer to the official brochure to determine whether an appointment is required. These listings will have the call ahead icon displayed.
