West Vancouver Community Arts Council

The West Vancouver Community Arts Council was established in 1968, with a mission to increase and broaden the opportunities for West Vancouver and all North Shore citizens to enjoy and participate in cultural activities. The WVCAC is based out of the Silk Purse Arts Centre on the waterfront near John Lawson Park at 1570 Argyle Avenue. The District of West Vancouver generously makes the Silk Purse available for the Council’s use.


All WVCAC events & programming are cancelled or postponed until further notice. We will update programming information on our website as soon as it becomes available. Our official response & updates can be found here.

The arts are critical to the health & vitality of our community. In these challenging times, your support of our organization & the arts is more important than ever. We appreciate your patience & understanding.

Since the launch of our "Impact the Arts!" appeal in October, we have received over $14,750 in donations from 150 generous members and friends. Thank you! But with current programming revenue on hold, and the sustainability of our arts and cultural activities hanging in the balance, we must redouble our fundraising efforts. We need your further support. Please make a tax-deductible online contribution now, by clicking here.

WVCAC publishes a newsletter each quarter. Pick up a printed copy at the Silk Purse or download it here.
