Founded in 1969, the Community Arts Council of Williams Lake is a vital voice for local arts and culture in the Cariboo Chilcotin.
Founding members, including playwright Gwen Ringwood, publisher Clive Stangoe, potter Anna Roberts and thespian Anne Hornby, envisioned a collective and collaborative organization charged with invigorating the creative community.
Since then, CACWL has produced and supported public art and arts education, all while encouraging strong social connections that celebrate culture. CACWL serves our 14 member groups, individual artists, youth arts and the community at large through performances, workshops, funding and arts and culture experiences.
CACWL continues to enrich the arts with these inspired initiatives: Art in the Park, Indigenous Events (Ground Mural and Hip Hop workshops), Cabin Fever Workshop Series, Artists in the Schools, City Art Banners, Earth Friendly Holiday Event, Feature Artist Series, Lake City Secondary Art Student Bursary, The Giving Tree and live performances.
