Monashee Arts Council
The Monashee Arts Council is a non profit society formed in 1999 by local artists to promote the enjoyment of and participation in the arts and culture by all residents of all ages in our region. Our mandate is to :
- Educate the community about the visual, literary and performing arts.
- Foster pride and understanding of the artistic heritage of our local community.
- Sponsor cultural events.
- Promote community economic development by assisting individual artists, artisans, performers, and creators of artistic works.
- Articulate and communicate the cultural needs of our community to all levels of government
The Monashee Arts Council sponsors a number of artistic and cultural activities throughout the year including various classes and workshops and monthly art shows held at the Village Gallery in Lumby.
Our premier event is our annual Festival of the Arts held during Lumby Days the second weekend in June. The Festival includes a variety of activities including artist and artisan vendors, an artist exhibition, a photography contest, and information about upcoming events & classes.
We are also a member of the Lumby Public Market and host hands on art projects there. The booth is available to any of our members who wish to display their work at the Saturday markets held from May through October.
