Patterns of Arts Support in Newfoundland and Labrador

Lay Summary 

This project is the first to examine how the Arts are supported in Newfoundland and Labrador, by whom, and how this support compares nationally. Which areas of business, government, and foundations allocate to the Arts in Newfoundland and Labrador? What sort of support do they offer and to which organizations, artists, and art forms? How does Newfoundland and Labrador compare in per capita public and private support to the Arts in Newfoundland and Labrador to other jurisdictions in Canada? This project seeks to investigate where Arts support comes from in this province and to offer feasible recommendations on how contributions to the Arts can be optimized by identifying who is contributing, how they are contributing, and how to ameliorate Arts contributions.
