Our energies are focused on providing our community with valuable services like Artspeak Gallery, Art.Work workshops, Individual grant consultation, an in-office resource library, and our website which hosts resources, a community arts calendar, and profiles of our members and their work.

We are also home to Vanguard, the ACWR’s Youth Arts Collective. ACWR serves as a hub, making connections and providing support to help build the capacity of our creative community in Windsor and Essex County.
