The arts breathe life into our city. Our campaign has concrete ideas about how to help the arts thrive in our communities.

We support the creation of an arms length funding organization to allocate grants through peer review without political interference.

We support investment that matches national per capita averages and increased support for artist-run centres and cooperatives that have an exponential impact in the arts community by providing affordable space and resources.

We support free community recreation programs run through city-owned and operated facilities. We want aspiring artists and craftspeople of all ages and incomes to enjoy a creative outlet.

We support free transit, fair wages for workers, and affordable housing. Let’s build a city where artists can afford to live, raise their families, and pursue their passion.
This gorgeous view of our city was captured by local painter Nicole Power ( .) It’s titled “I <3 Dartmouth.” Thanks for sharing your talent, Nicole!
