Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) was the first arts council in North America. Since its beginning in 1946, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver has been a contributor to shaping the cultural life of Vancouver. CACV is an independent non-profit charitable organization, unaffiliated with any government department.
Our vision is of a socially-engaged, inclusive, and vibrant city alive with community arts.
Community arts is made by, with, for, and because of people sharing a sense of community, with the support of professional artists.
We currently advance our vision across Vancouver through community arts programs that address social exclusion and accessibility of creative opportunities, Indigenous and non-Indigenous relationships, and sustainability in the arts sector. CACV programs include: Reframing Relations, Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival, Community Arts Network – GATHER, and Artist in Residence currently partnering with John Howard Society of the Lower Mainland.
