What Do We Do?
NDAC has individual and group members who all participate in art and culture related activities. Members represent such disciplines as theatre, music, dance, visual arts, crafts, heritage, and writing.
We present a number of projects each year intended to foster the arts in Nelson and District including Nelson ArtWalk, Hidden Creek Artist Residency, Appetite for Art, the Dance Educator’s Showcase, the Rural Artist Support Weekend, the Nelson International Mural Festival and Bigby Place Arts Initiative.
Fostering communication, networking and providing support to members is one of NDAC’s main objectives. In addition, members and member groups are eligible through us for small funding awards from the B.C. Arts Council.
Advocacy, representation, and education are all important in fostering greater appreciation and support of arts and culture in the Nelson area. NDAC also has a seat on the Cultural Development Committee for the City of Nelson, working toward a more coordinated arts, culture and heritage community.
Information on the arts in the greater Kootenay region can be found on the Kootenay Arts site.
