Our mission is to act as a resource for local artists while promoting the vision, creativity and energy of the community through the arts.
Our vision is to be the voice and resource for local artists and their art.
The Abbotsford Arts Council was created to develop and enhance the arts in the Abbotsford community. The Arts Council consists of members, volunteers and directors representing diverse artistic, economic, political, and cultural interests of community members of all ages.
We encourage and support local arts organizations and individuals, including artists of all levels, by coordinating projects and events on our own and through partnerships to address the needs of our members.
We provide opportunities that promote and stimulate the arts in our community, and are a resource for arts information.
