How exciting to provide the public with such a colourful, informative directory which promotes the artists of our area – an area rich with artists of all disciplines: Media, Visual, Performing and Literary. At this point the Almaguin Highlands Arts Directory is a bi-annual publication. The campaign to create this publication begins in November with publication and distribution scheduled for May of the following year.
This Arts Council represents the entire Almaguin Highlands Area and functions as an umbrella organization working with existing arts groups, individual artists, galleries and various community organizations to advance and market artists and events, and to endorse the Almaguin area as a year-round arts and cultural destination.
We will continue to provide opportunities for Almaguin artists to display/sell their creations, to promote their artistic endeavours, to liaise with other artists and to mingle with art supporters.
We are committed to establishing a broader public awareness of our arts community and to encourage a widespread appreciation of, support for, and involvement in the arts.
