The Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation, incorporated in 2009 as a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization, has been established to preserve and sustain the traditions and practices of outport life for present and future generations.
Newfoundland and Labrador has changed a great deal since becoming part of the Canadian Confederation in 1949. The Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation honours the characteristics of our culture which have always made our province a holdin' ground, as Bay Roberts native son, Newfoundland writer Ted Russell, has described it.
The Bay Roberts Cultural Foundation has long wanted to see a Performing Arts Centre in our community. Because the performing arts, including music, dance, storytelling, and acting have played such a pivotal role in our region, a centre is badly needed. The Cultural Foundation is now sponsoring a “Chase the Ace” Fundraiser, and the bulk of any money raised will go to a Performing Arts Centre Fund.
