The Arts Council Endowment Fund was established in 2004 with a donation from Blair Borden. Blair was a founding member of the Arts Council back in 1971, as well as an enthusiastic supporter of musical education, recycling and community-based arts. Each year, the Foundation grants the interest generated to the Arts Council for the purposes of supporting arts programming for the whole community, including community public art projects and Wednesday On the Wharf summer concert series.
Shuswap District Arts Council acknowledges it carries out its work on the traditional territories of the Secwepemc People. We pay our respects to the Elders, past and present, descendants and custodians of these lands. We honour the knowledge keepers and the continuing relationships with Secwepemc Peoples in the BC interior. The Arts Council is grateful to the Neskonlith First Nations, on whose traditional territories we operate the Arts Centre and its programs.
