Squamish Arts, formerly Squamish Arts Council, has existed since the early 1970’s serving Squamish as a community arts non-profit.

Through seeking funding resources, strengthening communication, and supporting local art initiatives we hope to serve the Squamish community as an advocate for the vision of a vibrant arts & culture scene in Squamish.


Squamish Arts aims to raise awareness of and improve access to arts and culture in Squamish while supporting local artists


to see arts and culture embedded into the fabric of Squamish’s community and considered a vital component of its identity


to support local artists in their pursuit of artistic development and excellence in all art forms; increase access to the arts for all local populations including enhancing art outlets for youth; pursue opportunities for a community arts space to enhance art development and learning in Squamish; cultivate community relationships to generate support and awareness for local arts; and act as a voice to local government and stakeholders that represents the collective arts community.

Squamish Arts has engaged in strategic planning activities to support the
