Its mission is to foster and promote the creation and enjoyment of the arts for the benefit of all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians. ArtsNL receives an annual grant from the Province to support a variety of granting programs, office administration, and communications. It also seeks support from the public and private sector. It supports these artistic disciplines: dance, film, multidiscipline, music, theatre, visual art, and writing.

Lawnya Vawnya

Location: St. John's, NL

Founded in 2010, and going into its seventh edition, Lawnya Vawnya: An Exposition of Independent Art and Culture is a non-profit music and art festival that merges some of Newfoundland and Labrador’s strongest artistic talent with national and international acts. This year, the festival is set to feature musical acts like Wolf Parade, Steve Maloney, AE Bridget, Jenina MacGillivray, Krystle Hayden, and more.  These artist’s performances will have readings peppered in between them from the likes of authors such as Eva Crocker, George Murray, and Craig Francis Power. In our latest feature, we chat with Bryan and Chrissy to learn more about the festival, which takes place from May 10 to 13, 2017.
