Arts Nova Scotia and the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council are seeking proposals from an Artistic and Event Producer to coordinate the production of the 2021 Creative NS Gala programming and event delivery. The final concept and content of the event (including artists/performers) will be determined by the Artistic/Management Team in consultation with Arts Nova Scotia.
Presented by Arts Nova Scotia and the Creative Nova Scotia Leadership Council, the Creative Nova Scotia Awards Gala (the Gala) is an annual event that celebrates excellence in artistic achievement, notably in the announcements of two major awards, the Portia White Prize and the Lieutenant Governor's Masterworks Award. Winners of the Prix Grand Pré, the Established Artist, Emerging Artist, the Black Artist Recognition and Indigenous Artist Recognition Awards and the Creative Community Impact Award are also honoured. Collectively, the awards are worth $100,000.
The Artistic and Event Producer is responsible for planning and carrying out all aspects of the awards ceremony and evening celebration with approval from Arts Nova Scotia.
The 2021 Creative NS Gala must adhere to NS public health guidelines. Therefore, the proposal should assume that the event will be broadcast via digital livestream with the potential for a small audience. The total budget for the event including fees is $77,000.
