Halls Island Artist Residency is an initiative by the Fraser-Hughes family to provide artists of many disciplines with a peaceful, private retreat in the Haliburton Highlands, which is land traditionally stewarded by the Anishnaabek and Huron-Wendat First Nations. It will strive to welcome artists to this very special part of the world, and encourage them to give back to the Haliburton arts community with a community engagement component of their residency.

Halls Island is a small island on beautiful Koshlong Lake. It possesses three small cabins, a main cabin with simple kitchen, dining and living area, and two small sleeper cabins, as well as a nordic-style sauna. Halls Island is without plumbing, using a composting toilet, and relies on solar panels for its minimal power.
