Advisory Boards and Councils

Advisory Boards and Councils

Advisory Boards and Councils are made up of men and women from all walks of life. They represent the many people and industries that participate in arts, culture and heritage activities throughout Nova Scotia. Their insight and knowledge help government formulate policies and make decisions related to the culture and heritage sectors.

Board and council members participate in everything from financial decisions to sector strategies. Some are involved in events or initiatives that promote and celebrate our culture. Others may advise on the preservation of our heritage or serve important institutions in the province.

The guidance of our many public advisors and board members helps the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage better serve our artists, cultural industries and all Nova Scotian communities.
