As you know, St Norbert Arts Centre is rich in community history and our heritage designated building with the several gardens throughout the grounds has been the special events venue choice for many. The community has been able to experience the calming beauty of the grounds on their family walks, daily fitness commitment and/or relaxing under their favourite tree for a touch of respite. And, looking towards the future (once the COVID Red regulations have been lifted), we are hoping to be first choice for a variety of indoor and outdoor events once again.
St. Norbert Arts Centre – A Place for Inspiration for All
SNAC is a diverse community dedicated to the cultural, environmental, and spiritual preservation of its home—the historical Trappist Monastery site located in St. Norbert, Manitoba.
Our motto is Earth, Spirit, and Culture.
2020 has been an interesting year for sure – balance is one of the key words that comes to mind when I think about all that is “happening” throughout the world. The St. Norbert Arts Centre is where you can find balance and serenity.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, we would like to invite you to stay connected with SNAC through a yearly or two-year membership.
For your SNAC experience and enjoyment, we offer:
- Acres of eco-forest which is surrounded by the La Salle River
- Variety of gardens and paths that host many Manitoba indigenous plants
- Home to Indigenous spiritual grounds, Buddha and the Pagoda neighbouring the Trappist Monastery Ruins Provincial Park
- An up & coming variety of programs (once COVID regulations are lifted): concert series, art exhibits, community outreach camps, outdoor dance productions, artisan market and the second Annual Gerry Festival in August to entice your artistic side of life.

NAfro Dance Artistic Director Casimiro Nhussi, presents “Matope” inspired by the mystic tale from the Makonde people of northern Mozambique and south of Tanzania. Matope, meaning ‘mud’ in Swahili, is the spirit that comes from muddy land in Namaua village who comes out at sunset to pay a visit to the villagers. Its entire body is covered with mud and is unknown to the villagers and therefore it creates fear. Matope dance production examines the fear of living with an unknown spirit.
