Gabriola Arts Council Seeking New Funds

 The Gabriola Arts Council is pursuing a Regional District tax contribution of $50,000 annually.

The Gabriola Arts Council is one of only a few community arts councils in British Columbia that does not receive regional district and/or municipal operating funds. Around B.C. and across the country, local governments recognize the value that locally-based arts programming brings to a community. In the absence of municipal funding, we are pursuing regional district funding. This will bring GAC in line with other arts councils in B.C., and will ensure that we can continue the successful operation of our lively organization that so enhances community life on Gabriola.
