Our Action Plan:

who are we and what do we stand for?
Mission

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.

Values

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.

Vision

Build, promote and integrate the arts and culture into the fabric of the community of Pemberton and surrounding areas, by:

i) Educating and increasing the public’s understanding and appreciation of the arts and culture by providing performances and exhibitions of an artistic and cultural nature in public places.

ii) Providing instructional seminars and workshops to the public and to artists on topics related to arts and culture.

iii) Working collaboratively with other organizations in Pemberton and the surrounding areas to support, enhance and coordinate artistic and cultural experiences such as, but not limited to, workshops, events, presentations, exhibitions and festivals.

iv) Working collaboratively with other organizations, businesses, government, First Nations communities and local residents in Pemberton and the surrounding areas to support and enhance artistic and cultural tourism.

v.) To do all such other things as ancillary or incidental to the attainment of the above.
