Dear supporters of the Arts Atlantic Symposium,
On April 24, New Brunswick’s Premier Blaine Higgs announced that large public gatherings such as festivals and concerts are prohibited through Dec. 31, 2020. Sadly, this decision draws a line through our Atlantic Art Symposium planning for Oct. 14-18, 2020.
In response to this announcement, the symposium — a multidisciplinary art festival and conference celebrating the challenges and successes of professional artists in Atlantic Canada — is being postponed to the fall of 2021 with dates to be determined.
We would like to thank our sponsors and community supporters for the enthusiasm that they have already expressed for this bold endeavour. We look forward to collaborating with you all on the 2021 edition of this exciting event.
