QSS History:
Queen Street Studios, located in the heart of downtown Dartmouth, opened its doors on October 24, 2006.

Fondly known as QSS, it owes its genesis to the personal and professional background of its creative director Julia Rivard. Her vision was to create a place for creatives to meet, work and share ideas. Together with business partner Trevor Marshall, Julia purchased the historic Union Protection Company property, built in 1895 at 50, Queen Street in Dartmouth. In the summer of 2006, the interior of the building was transformed into a unique space and Julia's dream became a reality.
