NEWS: EMBARGOED: Reaching out to the Francophone community: MNS signs MOU with FéCANE

Music Nova Scotia signs Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with La Fédération culturelle acadienne de la Nouvelle-Écosse (FéCANE)

Music Nova Scotia and FéCANE (La Fédération culturelle acadienne de la Nouvelle-Écosse) would like to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This agreement will work towards bringing more opportunities to Francophone musicians in Nova Scotia.

Music Nova Scotia is a non-profit member association with a mandate to encourage the creation, development and promotion of Nova Scotia’s music industry through communication, education and advocacy.

Since 1989, Music Nova Scotia has worked to foster and develop the music industry, helping hundreds of musicians turn a hobby into a career. Today, Music Nova Scotia has an Acadian staff member. In future, the organization is hoping to incorporate more Francophone services to members.

FéCANE is a collective of Francophone organizations that is working towards the development of artistic, cultural, social and economic opportunities in the Acadian community of Nova Scotia.

The goal of the MOU is to create a partnership between the two organizations and to publicly state the intention to collaborate on future projects.

“This MOU is a chance for our organization to open its arms to welcome the many Francophone artists in Nova Scotia who are seeking the services we are already providing,” said Scott Long, Executive Director of Music Nova Scotia. “We look forward to working with FéCANE to make business opportunities more accessible to Francophone artists.”

With the wealth of musical talent in the Francophone communities of Nova Scotia, this partnership is a natural step towards the wider promotion of Nova Scotian Francophone artists to the rest of the world.

This MOU was announced during the FéCANE Arts and Community Themed Forum held at the Cambridge Suites on Brunswick Street in Halifax.
