The Union of Municipalities of New Brunswick (UMNB) has announced that the Town of Salisbury has been selected as the host community for a pilot project to support the development of a municipal cultural policy for 2024-2025. 

The project is the result of a new partnership between the Association Acadienne des Artistes Professionel.le.s du Nouveau-Brunswick (AAAPNB), ArtsLink NB, and the Association Francophone des Municipalités du Nouveau-Brunswick (AFMNB) and UMNB, made possible with the support of the federal and provincial governments.

The town of Salisbury was selected by a committee made up of representatives from UMNB and Artslink NB. The collaborative process will engage municipal council, staff, and a wide range of community members, supported by UMNB and its partners.

Resources to help all municipalities, such as a translation of AAAPNB’s “Guide to Help Communities in the Development of Cultural Policies” will also be available as part of the project.
