Welcome to AX, the Arts & Culture Centre of Sussex
12 Maple Avenue, Sussex, New Brunswick.
AX welcomes approximately 1600-2000 visitors to our arts and culture centre each month. People have come from Sussex and all across Canada, the United States, and even some from Europe and the Middle East.
The land on which AX operates is the traditional unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq people. These lands are subject to a treaty of Peace and Friendship, which did not hand over ownership of lands, but rather established what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
A hub for arts and culture
AX is a charitable organization that offers multi-disciplinary arts and culture programming, and our mission is to promote and support arts and culture to enhance creativity and the quality of life in the greater Sussex region.
We aim to:
- Connect art, artists, and the public
- Present dynamic exhibitions, art and fine craft classes, and live music and literary performances
- Offer artists and the public fresh and innovative experiences from near and far
Our building is located in the heart of Sussex, New Brunswick and consists of a licensed restaurant called Knocks Café, an outdoor patio, a professional, climate-controlled and secure gallery, a Ceramics Centre, and artists’ studios for rent.
