Our Arts Council
The Slocan Valley Community Arts Council (SVCAC) is located in the beautiful Slocan Valley region of British Columbia. Our 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.” Our work in the community is guided by this mandate.
Our non-profit society bylaws set out the rules for governing and operating the Slocan Valley Community Arts Council.
The SVCAC recognizes that we carry out our work on the unceded traditional territory of the Indigenous peoples of this region. We acknowledge and raise our hands with gratitude to the ancestors and keepers of the land.
What We Do
We provide funding to member groups and individuals through an annual grant program.
We coordinate and host arts and cultural events and projects throughout the Valley.
We make recommendations to the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance (CKCA) for the yearly allocation of monies they make available for our area.
Val Mayes | Administration
Additional funding is provided by the BC Arts Council, the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Columbia Basin Trust.
