About THE PORTAGE AND DISTRICT ARTS COUNCIL INC
History of the Portage and District Arts Council
Since 1977, the Council has provided the citizens of Portage la Prairie and the surrounding area, opportunities to become involved in the artistic life of the community. The Portage and District Arts Centre has provided a wide range of art activities for children, adults and arts groups in the visual, expressive and performing arts. The classes and workshops have been geared to various levels of expertise and in some cases raising the level of our amateur artists to professional status. In turn, these artists have become instructors and spread their creative energy to others.
The vision of the Portage and District Arts Centre is to be recognized as a leading arts organization essential to our community. It is comprised primarily of volunteers dedicated to nurturing creativity and appreciation of arts and culture by providing a vibrant and sustainable environment for the residents and surrounding region of Portage la Prairie.
