ArtsLink NB turns 15 this year – where does the time go?! – and you’re invited to the celebration!

We were founded in 2009 – a year when the best playlists were mixed CDs, jeans were low-rise, “unfriend” was a new addition to the Oxford Dictionary, and an agricultural-simulation game (FarmVille) caught surprising hold of attention spans across social networks, while Nickelback won the Juno for Best Group – and we’ve all come a long way since then!

Please join us in celebrating our collective achievements:

Saturday, June 22, 4pm – 10pm

@ the Saint John Arts Centre

A free event for ArtsLink NB members,* the early evening will playfully highlight past programs and future opportunities, while showcasing exceptional artists of varied disciplines through live presentations.

📣 The party will also include a BIG reveal related to the Arts Atlantic Symposium, which will take place in Moncton, October 18-20, and promises to dazzle and uplift our vibrant arts scene with an unforgettable three-day extravaganza celebrating the intersections of art, innovation and community–this is an announcement that you won’t want to miss!

🎂 Expect plenty of chances to mingle and network, with cocktail-style catering accompanied by a cash bar, door prizes, and, of course, birthday cake!
