Mission Statement: We celebrate and promote cultural, social and economic inclusion and well-being of all immigrants and newcomers.

Vision Statement: Under the umbrella of Niagara Folk Arts Multicultural Center (NFAMC), the Niagara Folk Arts Festival is a non-profit organization using art in all mediums to provide opportunities for discussions on diversity, artistic cultural expression, encouraging the retention of cultural heritage and traditions, the sharing of cultural activities with the community and to promote understanding and acceptance among the different cultures that make up the Canadian mosaic.

Land Acknowledgment: We acknowledge that we live, learn, and work on land that is the traditional territory of the Anishnabeg, and the Haudenosaunee peoples, and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit, and Metis peoples. We recognize that our great standard of wellbeing is directly related to the friendship and resources of the Indigenous people and we are taking a first step in reconciliation by honouring the land and Indigenous heritage, which dates back over 10,000 years.
