Policies and Reports

There are several core policies that Arts Nova Scotia uses to guide decision making and day to day operations. Click the tabs the left to view a particular policy or report.


January 2019 Update


Arts Nova Scotia’s Board of Directors has introduced four new policies to come into effect immediately.  These include Cultural Appropriation, Indigenous Arts Protocols, Respectful Workplaces, and Reviewing and Reversing Grant Decisions. These policies have been developed to strengthen our community and ensure we are in alignment with our provincial and national counterparts. For some of you, these policies will not be new to your organizations as you have been working to ensure principles of equity and respect are integral in both your governance and public programming.  

Arts Nova Scotia gratefully acknowledges the work of our colleagues across the country in taking the lead on some of these initiatives.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Director, Briony Carros or a Program Officer.
