For over 20 years, the NBFA has been hard at work building a vibrant future for New Brunswick’s artistic and cultural life.
We are the only charitable foundation in New Brunswick that focuses on arts & culture as whole instead of a specific category.
The success of the Arts & Heritage Stabilization Program (2002-2010), our raison d’être for the better part of the last decade, attests to our dedication to New Brunswick arts & culture and our ability to not only fund the arts, but make art work.
Why we do it
New Brunswick is our home. We believe arts & culture are vital to making it a great place to live. That’s why we work tirelessly to support artistic and cultural groups, enabling them to build better communities and create memorable experiences.
Message from our Chair
I truly believe that arts and culture benefits our society in more ways than one. Investing in the cultural sector helps build our creative industries, enabling artists and cultural professionals to pursue their careers in their home province. It also makes for healthier, happier citizens and strengthens our values, beliefs, customs, languages and traditions.
As we turn the page on a new chapter at the Foundation, we are striving to evolve our approach to supporting arts and culture to best serve New Brunswickers and our cultural industry.
We are facing challenging economic times, but with so many possibilities to explore, we’re confident that our Foundation and New Brunswick arts and culture will continue to thrive. Together we can make a difference!
