NAN logo

Launched in 2009 and described as “the place where arts and community engagement meet,” NAN has expanded to over 1900 members, including artists, arts organizations, cultural workers and community agencies. The network acts as a catalyst for new discussions and relationships, facilitates capacity building and professional development, collects research and shares information, and facilitates a shared vision around the place of arts in community development. NAN creates new opportunities for emerging and diverse artists through their awards, which support professional newcomer artists and community-based arts projects, and through extensive partnerships with local arts organizations and festivals on learning, networking and arts animation activities.
