Gabriola Arts Council

three ways to support artists

in our community

join GAC

When you join the Gabriola Arts Council you receive our exclusive members-only news, discounts and calls for entry. Our twice-monthly members-only newsletter features GAC news, community news, artist profiles, member events, workshops, exhibitions, and events and opportunities for artists on and off-island.


Basic memberships are $20 a year ($10 for students) and we have membership tiers for families, and businesses too. If funds are tight and you can’t afford the membership fee, send us a note.


We welcome donations in any amount from friends and supporters, and will provide a charitable receipt for tax purposes for all donations $10.00 or greater.

We make it easy to give – with several options for donating, including in-person, at your bank and online.

Do you love art? Do you want to be a part of keeping Gabriola Island the vibrant arts community that it is? Join our volunteer team and connect with artists and arts lovers in your community.


The Gabriola Arts Council values the time, energy, experience, and commitment contributed by our volunteers. We have all kinds of volunteer opportunities – many with minimal time commitments.


Plant new seeds for an abundant and creative community. Volunteering is an opportunity to cultivate new relationships and build on established ones; a chance to continue the vitality and the mission of the Arts Council. It benefits the entire community when we come together to make our favourite events happen year after year.
