The Bella Coola Valley Arts Council has been working in the Bella Coola Valley since 1976 promoting and facilitating both visual and performing arts.

The Valley Gallery is operated by volunteers and sponsors the annual Arts and Crafts Fair, Children’s Art Show, and annual Visual Art Show featuring the work of local artists.

We also support the Festival of the Arts and the Learning Society , and are looking for ways to support other arts related events in the Valley such as Music/spoken word nights, pottery & Raku making, arts workshops, etc.
The Arts Council operates out of the Valley Gallery located in front of SAMS School, 1961 Hwy 20. This also functions as a gallery for local artists, facilitating art sales and providing a venue for visiting Valley members and tourists.

Funding for the Arts Council is from the BC Arts Council, CCRD grant in Aid, Community Futures, and from arts sales, donations and fund raising events.

We are always looking for members who may be interested in supporting the Arts. Contact any of the board members or Ray McIlwain (250) 799 5977.
