Don Blanche is a unique platform for artists of all mediums to create, collaborate, co-habitate, and celebrate. Situated on Don Miller’s sprawling, 60-acre property near Shelburne, Ontario, (a two-hour drive North of Toronto), Don Blanche is an oasis of experimentation outside the city in a one-of-kind fully-equipped facility that mixes artists of all mediums and ages. The Don Blanche residency offers indoor living quarters and studio facilities for up to 35 residents for a one week period, culminating in a weekend-long Open-House on labour day long weekend, where indoor and outdoor things are presented in a context that mixes artists with non-artists from the local community.

As Don Blanche is situated in rural Ontario, part of our aim is to expand the contemporary art audience outside of urban centres, bringing artists to the country, and contemporary art experiences to rural communities.
