About West Shore Arts Council

Our History – The West Shore Arts Council (WSAC) was founded as a not-for-profit society in 1988, and today serves the cultural programming needs of over 80,000 people in five British Columbia communities – the cities of Langford and Colwood, Town of View Royal, and the Districts of Metchosin and Highlands, which all form part of the province’s Capital Regional District on Vancouver Island. The West Shore is recognized as one of the fastest growing regions in British Columbia. Our population is expected to double over the next twenty years and, as the area’s lead advocacy organization for the arts and culture, the West Shore Arts Council is working hard to keep pace in delivering cultural services and the valuable contributions they make to a healthy and vibrant community.

Our Vision – To enrich community life through a vibrant organization that fosters and promotes participation in the arts, culture and heritage on the West Shore.

Our Mission is to:

  • Encourage creative participation and excellence in the arts, culture and heritage;
  • Encourage the development of opportunities to perform and to exhibit the arts, culture and heritage;
  • Act as a clearing house for information pertaining to the arts, culture and heritage;
  • Promote and foster public interest, appreciation and understanding of the arts, culture and heritage;
  • Bring community planning priorities in the arts, culture and heritage to the attention of the local, regional, provincial and federal authorities;
  • Encourage and advocate for arts education and cultural development in the West Shore communities of Colwood, Highlands, Langford, Metchosin and View Royal.
