We’re busy revising the SAC website to serve the Squamish Art & Culture community better.
Squamish Arts Council Mission & Mandate:
The Squamish Arts Council’s (SAC) mission is to generate awareness of and improve access to arts , culture and heritage in Squamish. Since 2013, the SAC Board has focused on transitioning from an ‘operational’ arts organization to one that is more resource based that would serve as an arm’s length organization to the District of Squamish for the administration and adjudication of grant monies to arts groups, plus contribute to the development of stronger arts policy for the community, and provide more resources, mentorship and support for local arts, culture and heritage groups. 2014 was a turning point for SAC with many of these goals in progress and/or realized. 2015 has been a year of strategic planning for the future. More details coming soon.
