“I want to congratulate all of the nominees tonight, who represent just a fraction of the talent and creativity held within this province,” says Penelope Stevens, MNB President. “We want to acknowledge that there are hundreds of talented individuals not represented tonight and they, especially our BIPOC artists, really deserve our respect, recognition and support for their hard work. Thank you for making art in this province!”
