Prince Edward County Arts Council

Our mission is to enrich the community by actively supporting and promoting the arts and artists as an essential part of life in Prince Edward County. We do this by:
-Connecting artists to audiences through our signature events and programs, including Art in the County, PEC Arts Trail, PEC Studio Tour, and The Maker’s Hand;
-Promoting the arts and artists through Artscene newsletter, Artscene on Air radio show, What’s On event listing, and Member Profiles on;
-Supporting artists’ career development through our Artist Fund grant, funding opportunities and Student Arts Award, and by creating teaching and workshop facilitation opportunities at the County Arts Lab;
-Increasing access to the social and health benefits of arts participation through our community-focused programming – County Arts Lab, Art for Well-Being, Artists in the Community, and more;
-Incubating new arts events and initiatives, from the PEC Jazz Festival to County Kids Read and more, as they work towards independent charitable status; and
-Working collaboratively with those who share a common interest in leveraging the arts for the economic and social development of Prince Edward County.
