A splash of this and a dash of that …. If you have a vision of what the Arts Community in Sooke can grow into, they want to hear from you!
The Sooke Community Arts Council (SCAC) will be meeting on Tuesday October 3 at 6:30, at the Sooke Harbour House (1528 Whiffen Spit Road).
The meeting will be a “Round Table” to discus our mandate, and addressing questions like, “What is the Arts Council?” and “What can we do for all types of art in the community?”
The current mandate is:
- To encourage creative participation in and excellence in the arts
- to encourage the development of opportunities to perform and exhibit the arts
- act as a clearing house for information on the arts
- to bring to the attention of local, regional, provincial and federal authorities the artistic needs of the community.
Let’s see how the SCAC can update and enhance this mandate!
The public is invited to come out with opinions and ideas to help guide the Arts Council to serve the neighbourhood.
The arts council embraces all forms of the arts: visual arts (painting, sculpture, fabric art, pottery, glass, photography etc); performing arts (theatre groups, choirs, orchestras, dance etc.) and any other forms of art which may present themselves.
The Sooke Community Arts Council is a registered not for profit society funded by the BC Arts council and the District of Sooke.
Since you’re here, we have a small favour to ask.
At 1.7 million page views over the past year, more people than ever are reading SPN. We had hoped advertising local services and events would sustain this service, but that has not come to pass. Advertising revenues are falling; status quo is unsustainable. Readers, please consider a small monthly donation. This can help secure the future of SPN. Business owners: Please consider an ad. More than massive local exposure, you will also be affiliated with an independent business that is 100% local, 99% paperless, and highly valued by the 98%. That’s priceless.
Thank you for your continued readership.
