Frank Goodsir honoured at CVAC 50th wrap party

A (short) look back over the years – a sampling of artist interviews from the previous decade were also on display at the 50th event.


The Creston Valley Arts Council supports groups, individuals and organizations in all areas of the arts – visual, performing, literary, media, culture and heritage. ​We also provide financial assistance and networking opportunities, and are proactive for the growth and sustainability of our arts industry and culture.


As a volunteer board, we carry out the wishes of the members and as such we value the feedback, ideas and participation of anyone in the community who is engaged in or supportive of the arts.

Representing the area from Yahk to Riondel, we appreciate and seek to leverage the support we receive from the Regional District of Central Kootenay, as well as the Town of Creston. Other funding opportunities come from the Province of BC, the Assembly of BC Arts Councils and Columbia Basin Trust.

We are proud of the groups and organizations in the area who carry out such a diverse range of activities for the professional as well as the hobbyist. Our excitement is in seeing the role that arts and culture play in our communities, the partnerships that are developing, and in anticipating how we can all play a role

in supporting and encouraging sustainable ventures.
