In early 2006, a group of over 45 local artists with great visions decided that an art based establishment needed to happen in Pemberton. With all our diverse strengths we founded the Pemberton Arts Council, a non-profit organization with a mandate to create an environment for the advancement of the arts in our community.
The Pemberton Arts Council mission is to inspire and assist local artists, to increase access to artistic and cultural experience in the Pemberton and Lil’wat Lands, and to place culture in its proper place as one of the three foundations (culture, science, spirit) for social and economic progress in the region.
Teamwork – We collaborate with trust, respect and leadership
Integrity – We commit to accountability, fairness authenticity and ethical conduct
Inclusivity – We commit to community-driven partnerships and collaborations with flexibility that invites diversity
Resilience– We respect our fragile environment and how we, as a community, impact it. We practice arts and culture in a manner that is sustainable, inclusive, responsible and forward-thinking.
Passion – Our passion for creativity drives our mission to foster a vibrant arts and culture community.
