What’s New at VAC?

About Victoria Arts Council

The Victoria Arts Council respectfully acknowledges the Lək̓ʷəŋən-speaking peoples on whose traditional territory we operate and the Songhees, Esquimalt, and W̱SÁNEĆ First Nations whose historical relationships to this land and diverse cultural heritage continue to this day.

Since 1968, the Victoria Arts Council (formerly the Community Arts Council of Greater Victoria) has served the public as a charitable, non-profit, community arts organization. The VAC has grown from 60 members to approximately 600 members since its inception. We continue to serve the Victoria community through the generous support of the BC Arts Council, the CRD, the Province of British Columbia, the City of Victoria, and through our affiliations with numerous community partners and sponsors. The Victoria Arts Council remains strong and active with a mandate to provide advocacy through leadership, partnership, and community involvement; and to increase and broaden public awareness and opportunities in the arts and cultural activities.
