Cultural and Youth Activities Program

 

Art and culture activities are more than just entertainment. They teach us about who we are, they contribute to the well-being of our communities and they enrich the experiences of visitors to our province.

The Cultural and Youth Activities Program helps to build communities by fostering an appreciation for the arts; by introducing youth to artistic and cultural activity and to professional artists; and by creating links between exposure to the arts and audience development.

Placing an emphasis on activities that integrate the arts into community life and facilitate lifelong learning among residents, examples of events that the program supports include: performing arts festivals or competitions, community cultural events or projects and cultural workshops.
