The 2024-25 Provincial Budget: A Message to the Membership

Yesterday, the provincial government released its budget for 2024-25 titled Stronger Than Ever: Let’s Keep Building. In it, there are a couple of noticeable strides forward alongside some glaring omissions. I wish to convey our apprehension regarding the absence of crucial investments required for the arts and culture sector.

We are happy to see the inclusion of an increase to the New Brunswick Arts Board and Music•Musique NB’s programs of $1.9 million through the Arts Development Trust Fund, “towards grants and scholarships for New Brunswick artists, and grants for musicians and music organizations.” More details are expected soon on how this will be allocated.
