Research and advocacy in support of the arts in our province. Business & Arts NL representatives serve on the Arts and Culture Advisory Committee (City of St. John’s, 2016-2018) and meet with Ministers, officials and policy makers throughout the year to convey the message that supporting the arts is vital to business and the overall health of our province. Furthermore, Business & Arts NL has teamed up with MUN’s Dr. Jennifer Dyer to carry out the research project, Patterns of Art Support in Newfoundland and Labrador.
