The Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts is a multi-disciplinary arts festival that celebrates working class culture. The Festival was built on the premise that workers and artists share a common struggle for decent wages and healthy working conditions. The goal behind Mayworks is to use art to explore themes of social, economic, and environmental justice.
Mayworks Fredericton is a project of the Fredericton and District Labour Council. 2017 will mark the 3rd annual Mayworks Fredericton festival.
All Mayworks events are free. Donations are welcome.
