Since 1788, North Market Wharf has been the city’s public waterfront space – where local served local. Merchants from across the Bay of Fundy brought their goods and wares to this space to traders from across the street, and across the world over to barter, haggle, gossip, and exchange goods for their families and communities throughout the region. At the turn of this century, the space has reimagined itself and has taken a new interpretation as it returned to its origins.
If Uptown Saint John is the heart of the city, then Market Square is its aorta; and, to play along with the metaphor then, the Inside Connection is its veins. Connecting a waterfront stage and arena; two multi-sport facilities; dozens of locally owned shoppes with internationally known brands and local products alike; two five-star hotels; multiple award-winning restaurants and pubs; our city hall; two national news outlets; international bank institutions and brokerage firms; thousands of heated parking spaces; three office towers with leading corporate, legal, telecommunications, and insurance firms, to name a few; and, the oldest market in the nation – this anchor has earned being bestowed as the lifeblood of the city.
This space where locals connect with neighbours and international visitors alike has come full circle. This time, the waterfront commodity is the vibrant arts&culture that pulses from what is locally known as the Boardwalk. “We applaud the vision of growth in our city; particularly, for our waterfront space of the Loyalist Plaza Capital Campaign. Pairing this stage refurbishment with the celebration of the legacy of Canada 150 as phase one of the full-scale development – along with the long-term goals of continuing to raise the bar with programming – is how we envision turning the conceptual future into the tangible today”, says Stephany Peterson, Director of the North Market Wharf Cultural Association.
With this approaching milestone for the nation, the not-for-profit organization, North Market Wharf Cultural Association, set its sights on celebrating the upcoming sesquicentennial with a meritorious legacy: a revitalized outdoor stage for our waterfront. Having been awarded the 2016 Faces of FUSION Community Building Award, the momentum has been building, and the recent selection as a national first-round finalist for the Aviva Community Fund is a welcomed opportunity to support efforts to position our city as a leader in arts&culture infrastructure and programming.
Welcoming consistent world-class entertainment to our waterfront, while maintaining the focus on supporting local, is the spirit of what this space has represented for centuries. The community can express its support for the project by participating in an online vote, available by a simple registration process at avivacommunityfund.org<http://

The Association of ArtistRun Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is seeking proposals from artistrun organizations and collectives for potential programming partnerships and showcasing opportunities during the biennial gathering of artistrun centres in Charlottetown in September 2017.

Description of the event:
Mustering the verve and warmth of an East Coast kitchen party, The Association of ArtistRun Centres from the Atlantic (AARCA) is gearing up to host the biennial gathering of artistrun centres in Charlottetown, September 21st 24th 2017. The event will bring together artists, administrators, thinkers, curators and the public to consider the flexible, responsive and provisional forms of organization that are increasingly necessary for the sustained evolution of contemporary artistrun culture. Innovative platforms for artistic collaboration will be a key focus. The event will explore and share ideas around the theme Flotilla, a nautical metaphor that identifies a loose structure—boats and ships of varying dimensions banding together in open water—with a particular resonance in a maritime region, characterized by nomadism, temporary location, isolation and the presence of the sea as a shifting ground and a vehicle for exchange.
