Mayworks K’jipuktuk/Halifax Festival of Working People and the Arts

Website

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

Phone Number: info@mayworkshalifax.ca

The first annual Mayworks Halifax festival took place in 2009 thanks to the organizing efforts of volunteer union delegates to the Halifax-Dartmouth & District Labour Council. Our festival has since grown exponentially from year to year and has now become Nova Scotia’s largest social justice themed cultural event. Annually, our festival attracts over a thousand diverse audience members who take interest in issues of social, economic and environmental justice. Moreover, the multi-disciplinary nature of the festival allows us to draw followers from multiple arts communities including theatre, dance, visual art, film and music.
