The Nova Scotia Masterworks Awards Foundation is delighted to be partnering again with Halifax Public Libraries to present the 2019 instalment of  Artists & Conversation.

This popular annual event features a panel of Creators of Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award finalist works engaged in thought-provoking and insightful discourse on the subject of artistic practice and creation. Every year brings a new mix of talent and experience to the stage, and while we don’t yet know the names of this year’s Creators, we do know it will be an engaging, educational, and exciting evening!

The event will take place on Monday, September 30th in the Paul O’Regan Hall of the Halifax Central Library.
