The Slocan Valley Community Arts Council (SVCAC) is located in the beautiful Slocan Valley region of British Columbia. The Council’s mandate is
“To increase and broaden the opportunities for residents of the Slocan Valley and area to enjoy and participate in arts and cultural activities.”
The Council provides funding to member groups and individuals through an annual grant program, and also coordinates and hosts events and projects throughout the Valley. Funding is provided by the BC Arts Council, the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Columbia Basin Trust.
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.
Membership is open to individuals and groups who are interested and/or involved in the arts.
