The Slocan Valley Community Arts Council (SVCAC) is a group of volunteers who distribute grants and scholarships in three categories: to member groups, in response to community activities, and to fund projects that the group initiates and carries out.
Additionally, the Arts Council makes recommendations to the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA) for the yearly allocation of monies they make available. Once the final decision is made, the SV Community Arts Council distributes the funds.
Our mandate is to broaden the opportunities for residents of the Slocan Valley to participate in any kind of arts activities. Thanks go to the BC Arts Council who provides the funds.
Membership is open to individuals and groups who are interested and/or involved in the arts. We meet once a month in varying locations in the valley. Please consider joining.
Examples of funded programs and projects are:
- Community Band
- Threads Guild
- Local artists
- Dance groups
- Snow Day at Brent Kennedy School
- Slocan Lake Dance Camp
- Art & Garden Tour
- Professional Development Workshops
