Princeton Community Arts Council Society
Our Impact Why We Exist
The objective of the Arts Council is to enhance community life by providing opportunities for the public to enjoy all aspects of the arts.
Our Story What We Do
The Arts Council provides support for all mediums of art, particularly those espoused by our membership as they volunteer to demonstrate their skills. currently the focus is on music, theatre, visual arts in two and three dimensions and fabric arts. We present concerts throughout the year, many free to the public, showcasing a variety of different genres. The theatre group produce at least two performances each year. The council provides a workspace and meeting room for the use of the public for educational sessions and operates the Sunflower gallery to display works of any interested artists.
For the last four years we have also presented a celebration of First Nations culture, called the Spirit Festival. This was initially in the form of powwow but is now morphing to a festival celebrating more of local culture and display of modern aboriginal talents.
Our Programs How We Do It
We seek to collaborate with the many individuals and other community organisations to ensure that the arts are represented at every opportunity. Thus we are able to provide free concerts and art events in public spaces. We are supported by the town, the regional district and the province and many volunteers who drive the production of the activities.
What You Can Do
We are constantly seeking more volunteers, especially those with a passion for sharing their particular art medium.
Volunteers with no particular art talent are also welcomed to maintain the finincial and other records of the Council and to keep the doors of our gallery open to the public.
We are open to all proposals which will serve to enhance the cultural environment in Princeton.
