BACKGROUND AND PROGRAM PRIORITIES
In celebration of our twentieth anniversary in 2017, the Gabriola Arts Council (GAC) created a fund to support local artists in their pursuit of creative, educational, or community-based projects. The fund was seeded by contributions from the President’s Legacy Fund (created from donations made in honour of Kathy Ramsey’s contribution to arts and culture on Gabriola) and a donation from Tammy Hudgeon. The GAC Board of Directors agreed to allocate a portion of membership fees to the GASP, a decision which will ensure an ongoing source of revenue for the fund.
