Our festival is made possible thanks to numerous important partnerships and generous contributions.

How Can You Help?



Mayworks Halifax is an annual multi-disciplinary arts festival that celebrates and recognizes the history and struggle of the working people of Nova Scotia. Our mission is to celebrate workers as artists and artists as workers, to promote working class culture, and to connect the labour movement with the arts.

Our festival has grown exponentially over the last seven years becoming 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.

Our audiences are very diverse across age groups and communities. Recognition of our sponsors, partners and donors is visible to our patrons at live performances, film screenings and visual arts exhibits taking place in multiple Halifax venues every year.
