Almaguin Arts Council
The Almaguin Highlands is an area rich with artists of all disciplines. It is the undertaking of the Almaguin Highlands Arts Council to support and promote artists and arts activities of all disciplines: Media, Visual, Performing and Literary. It is key to recognize that this Arts Council represents the entire Almaguin Highlands Area. The Council functions as an umbrella organization working with existing arts groups, individual artists, galleries and various community organizations to promote and market artists and events, and to promote the Almaguin area as a year-round arts and cultural destination. 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. The Almaguin Highlands area is rich in natural beauty and resources – it has been an appealing tourist destination for over 100 years and continues to attract visitors in increasing numbers in all seasons. Super friendly people and a wealth of businesses and activities contribute to the appeal of the Almaguin Highlands. Arts and cultural events attract tourists – there are already many artists working and arts and cultural events taking place in this area but up to now, there was no central location to promote and advertise these artists and events – the AHAC through its website, calendar of events and newsletter will do that. We have a very rich cultural/artistic heritage in this area which needs to be promoted! “Find art in our nature.” Hazel Hornibrook Chair Almaguin Highlands Arts Council Board of Directors
