The Maritimes Canada Best Practices project identifies Industry Standards for the Visual Arts, Media and Crafts Sector. These guidelines serve as a model for practical and ethical practices within these sectors. As a result, this project facilitates fair and equitable dealings between creators and presenters across the region.
It is the ultimate aim of this project to develop a uniformity of standards and a common understanding of industry standards in the Maritime Provinces that are in agreement with Best Practices projects currently either established or in development across Canada. In turn, this will facilitate the ability of Maritime-Canadian artists to entertain business both within the Maritimes and across the country.
In the establishment of the Best Practices, CARFAC Maritimes recognizes the support of the following organizations:
Arts Nova Scotia
Association acadienne des artistes professionnels du Nouveau-Brunswick
ArtsLink New Brunswick
Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels
Visual Arts Nova Scotia
Galerie Sans Nom
