The Labrador Creative Arts Festival has changed over time yet its mandate has stayed the same. As the communities in Labrador have changed so too has the Festival. Oftentimes, the festival has led community life through its thematic approach and its workshops by visting artists throughout Canada. It has supported and provided an exploration of social media and emphasis on documentation both digital and in print which makes the festival both reflective and contemporary. Through time, special features have been added which make the festival more current.
These next pages give an outline of how the festival's original mandate has been re-interpreted through the decades.
