Arts, Culture and Heritage in the Nakusp Area

What We Do



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
