Our first Mayworks Annapolis Valley Festival of Working People and the Arts includes two evenings of fun that will engage diverse artists and workers at the intersection of culture, economics, & social justice.

Join us for the 1st annual Mayworks Annapolis Valley Festival, hosted by the Annapolis Valley Labour Council.

May 9 is our Movie Night and May 10 is our Variety Show.

On Thurs, May 9, we're featuring the movie "Pride", a 2014 British LGBT-related historical comedy-drama film written by Stephen Beresford and directed by Matthew Warchus. Based on a true story, the film depicts a group of lesbian and gay activists who raised money to help families affected by the British miners' strike in 1984. Movie Night Tickets are FREE with a Food Bank Donation.

May 1st is marked throughout the world as International Workers’ Day, or May Day. One of the ways various labour councils and unions mark May Day is through the Mayworks Festival. Mayworks was originally conceived in 1986 by the Toronto and York District Labour Council and the idea has since spread to many cities across Canada. The goal behind Mayworks is to bring workers and artists together and to use art to explore themes of justice, solidarity, and liberation.
