St. John's owes a great deal to its vibrant arts community. Promoting that community is also promotion of the city itself.

Even though I live outside of St. John's, I am an arts educator. It is important for the emerging artists to be able to make a decent living and be shown the respect that other highly educated and skilled people show. I also believe that an Arts based community is a strong community and will be sought after by both tourists and young professionals who wish to raise families in a vibrant city.
