AX: The Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex



Welcome to AX, the Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex

12 Maple Avenue, Sussex, New Brunswick

AX welcomes between 2000-3000 visitors to our arts and culture centre each month. We host visitors from our hometown of Sussex and all across the world. 

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.

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.
