Supporting Artists and Fostering Arts Appreciation in Kingston is a growing trend that we are proud to be such a part of!
In the Kingston arts community, the KAC plays the role of funder, champion, advocate, and expert. The KAC recently went through a strategic planning process that included community consultations with close to 100 individuals. The key takeaways were that the KAC needs to take a more proactive role to act as a communications hub, create more opportunities for young emerging artists, foster appreciation for the arts, professional development, funding, presentation, and networking.
This valued partnership with Artfest is one of that many ways that the KAC is moving towards this mandate. Follow Kingston Arts Council online at www.artskingston.ca, on Twitter @artsking or, at www.facebook.com/artskingston.
