Alliance for Arts & Culture
In 1986, Greater Vancouvers
cultural community created the Alliance for Arts and Culture
to provide a strong voice for the sector and an avenue to
work together. This coalition now numbers more than 330 arts
groups and individuals and leads Greater Vancouvers
arts and culture community by advocating for our sector, facilitating
connections within the arts and with other sectors, and providing
information to and about our community.
