November 2018 Art Centre Directors Conference

Andrew Kierstead and Kathryn McCarroll on the SJAC steps

The Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is committed to supporting the vitality of the visual arts in New Brunswick through a variety of awards, scholarships and grants. In 2018, the foundation has taken an active role in facilitating networking events aimed at promoting collaboration and exchange. An Arts Advocacy Grant of $10,000 is awarded to Saint John Arts Centre, a key facilitator in a pan-provincial networking initiative for Directors of community arts centers.

Community Arts Centers play a key role in promotion of the arts in New Brunswick. SHMF applauds the vision of a working collective of art directors to advance the development of a strong communication and support network among the province’s many unique centers. More information on the November 19th conference is available through Andrew Kierstead (Director – Saint John Arts Centre), or Courtney Steeves (Director – Charlotte Street Arts Centre).
