To encourage public awareness and appreciation of the richness of cultural life on the Saanich Peninsula by providing a collective voice for the arts community, and being an advocate, information source and support resource for all forms of artistic expression.
The ArtSea Community Arts Council is a registered non-profit organization that encourages, supports and promotes local arts activities throughout the year.
Through provincial and municipal funding, as well as our own fundraising initiatives, we are able to support such events as Sidney Fine Art Show, Salish Sea Lantern Festival, Artisans Show and Sale, Spring and Fall Studio Tours, and operate the ArtSea Gallery in Tulista Park.
ArtSea organizes lectures, presentations, workshops and art shows. We also offer grants to member groups. Our website and online newsletter highlight the artistic events and shows of the Peninsula, as well as Greater Victoria area.
We welcome new members and our membership is open to everyone; artist or lover of arts.
ArtSea manages the ArtSea Gallery in Tulista Park, 9565 Fifth Street, Sidney.
