Abigail Smith

Quality Block Party

I am a co-founder and programmer of Quality Block Party music festival and conference in Saint John, New Brunswick. Quality Block Party is programmed bi-annually in Saint John with events in both April and August. Our focus is on elevation and development of Saint John and New Brunswick musicians, which includes showcasing New Brunswick artists at other Canadian festivals. My place within QBP involves booking, policy development, harm reduction, and conference (capacity-building) programming. As a member of the Saint John Arts Board I prioritize reform of noise and public event by-laws.
