The Arrow Lakes Arts Council was formed in 1977 to promote an interchange of educational and cultural endeavors between local and outside artists, both professional and amateur, as well as a variety of other community-related efforts, for Nakusp and the Arrow Lakes region.
Our objectives as a society are:
- to foster interest and pride in the cultural heritage of the Arrow Lakes area
- to promote and enhance the Arrow Lakes area's economic potential related to local cultural fields
- to bring to the attention of civic, provincial, and federal authorities the cultural needs of Nakusp and the Arrow Lakes area
- to encourage the participation of all segments of the community in the various activities of the society
