The New Brunswick Arts Board is an arm’s length arts funding agency with a legislated mandate to facilitate and promote the creation of art as well as administering funding programs for professional artists in the province.
The board of directors and staff of the New Brunswick Arts Board are proud to present the artsnb 2018-2021 Strategic Plan, which plots the course that we intend to follow over these three years. This plan is the result of broad consultations with our stakeholders, including individual artists, arts organizations, arts and culture advocacy groups, and the provincial government. It represents our vision for renewal and demonstrates our adaptive capacity to take New Brunswick to the next level of development and sustainability in the arts.
The New Brunswick Arts Board (artsnb) was established in 1989 as part of the New Brunswick government’s fine arts policy. The New Brunswick Arts Board Act was assented to in November 1990 and came into force in June 1991.
This act was amended in 1999 (An Act to Amend the New Brunswick Arts Board Act) in order to extend the autonomy and areas of responsibilities of the New Brunswick Arts Board. The act was further amended in 2016 (2016 Amendment to the New Brunswick Arts Board Act).
