Community Arts Council History

The Grove History

The Community Arts Council of the Alberni Valley was founded in 1965 and incorporated as a non-profit society in 1971. In 1977, the Community Arts Council moved in to the historical site of the Rollin Art Centre.

  • Provision & support of quality programming services and events in all facets of the arts
  • Participation in the preservation
  • Planning and development of cultural facilities and institutions
  • Contributing to the development of cultural policies at the local, regional, provincial and national levels
