|About||Mayworks Halifax is an annual Festival of Working People & the Arts in Halifax, Nova Scotia http://MayworksHalifax.ca|
|Mission||An annual arts festival in Halifax that will include visual arts (painting sculpture, photography, performance art etc) and performance including music, film, video, theatre, dance, stand up comedy, poetry or spoken word, or performance of any kind. The mission is to connect workers to artists and artists to workers, to promote working class culture and celebrate workers AS artists. Workers and artists share a common struggle for decent wages, healthy working conditions and a living, relevant culture, that reflects their lives.|
Mayworks Halifax is a labour-sponsored celebration of the arts that seeks to bring workers and artists together, using art to explore economic and social justice.
Mayworks Halifax is a modest contribution to building a culture and society that celebrates and recognizes the history and struggle of the working people of Nova Scotia. The festival is centred on May Day – May 1st – the internationally recognized workers day.
