SSAC is the gateway to the arts on Salt Spring Island. Established in 1967-68, we are a charitable organization serving residents of Salt Spring Island.
The Arts Council is widely known for its support of ArtCraft and WinterCraft galleries highlighting the talent of its island artists. We also support budding artists through grants and funding to the Artist in the Class Program.
By providing funding, material and organizational support to a broad range of groups and individuals, the Arts Council fosters a positive environment for visual and performing artists, artisans, writers and performers—enriching the lives of all Salt Spring Island residents.
As part of a province-wide network of community arts councils, we distribute provincial funding available to arts and crafts groups, and consult with similar organizations throughout B.C.
