The idea for Victoria County Creates (VCC) was born in the Spring of 2016 by a group of community members who saw the need for an arts center in Victoria County, Cape Breton Island. Starting as a small store with 25 local artists, VCC now features over 70 artisans and makers, offers new workshop space and is staffed by the artists themselves.
