Arts + Culture Powerhouse
Our Vancouver Island + rural Islands super-region has all the ingredients to support a thriving, inclusive Creative Economy. Culture is an untapped economic driver, there are artists, artisans and makers in every nook and cranny, plus we're a top global tourist destination.
We are a mixture of artists, arts centres, arts organizations and representatives from tourism and economic development. We are collaborating and innovating across sectors in support of an inclusive Creative Economy. We believe in 'thinking and acting' like an ecosystem, which for us means caring about the well-being of every community in our super-region. And it means filling gaps in supports and services - especially to equity-denied populations, so everyone can participate.
