As the professional association which speaks for French-speaking artists in New Brunswick, AAAPNB's primary role is to represent the interests of artists, advocate on their behalf, and ensure that individuals and groups with political and social influence on the socioeconomic status of artists fully recogniize their importance. AAAPNB also offers a wide range of services to support the professional work of individual artists and collectives. It contributes to the consolidation of different arts disciplines and, more broadly, to the development of an ecosystem which fosters the growth and enhances the visibility of artists. Lastly, it establishes partnerships with other sectors of society in order to better position artists and the arts in every sphere of activity.
