Arts Nova Scotia

Arts Nova Scotia is the provincial funding agency that provides support to professional artists and arts organizations, arts education programs and a number of arts awards and prizes. They play a central and vital role to the province's arts community, distributing over $3 million dollars through hundreds of individual grants annually. They also administer the Nova Scotia Art Bank, a working collection of artwork loaned out and displayed in government offices and agencies.

For their new website, Arts Nova Scotia wanted to make it easier for artists to find information related to grants and funding programs. This was accomplished by simplifying the site structure and developing a new, user-centric information architecture, as well as pulling information out of PDFs and into the site proper.
