  • Engage. Enhance. Inspire.

    The Gabriola Arts Council is a not-for-profit society under BC’s Society’s Act, and a charitable organization under the federal Charities Directorate.

    According to a 2011 Hills Strategy Research study conducted on behalf of the Canada Council for the Arts, Gabriola Island ranks sixth across Canada with respect to concentration of artists in the local workforce (5.8% compared to the national average of 0.8%). Every day is a celebration of the arts on this “Isle of the Arts” and in this community of writers, actors, poets, painters, dancers, musicians, sculptors and potters. Artists are an important part of the island’s economic and social engine, and the Gabriola Arts Council (GAC) is committed to growing this sector through building audiences, and by increasing accessibility of the arts to people of all ages and interests. GAC supports local artists in all mediums and at all levels, while ensuring that local residents have opportunities to engage with art and artists, and that off-island communities are aware of our rich artistic resources.
