Arts and culture makes our Nicola Valley fun and interesting for residents and visitors.
Be part of the action!

Special thanks to all the Sponsors whose financial support not only made the Gala happen, but ensured that the Arts Council will be able to collaborate on projects, events and programs with even more community groups in town in the coming months.
We would love to hear your feedback. Email your comments and suggestions to email@example.com. Compliments look great in our grant applications and suggestions will improve any future events.
