About Us


The Community Arts Council of Prince George & District (“CAC”) was established in 1968 to respond to a growing need to expand the reputation of artistic endeavours throughout the Regional District of Fraser-Fort George. The CAC has been a vital component of the Prince George district for over 50 years. Since its founding, the CAC and its members have been providing a wide range of services and programs that have helped contribute to the spirit of innovation, ingenuity and open-mindedness that defines the Prince George district. As of this year, the CAC is the umbrella organization to 245 members, comprising professional and emerging artists, performers, ensembles, artisan guilds and cultural organizations, all living and working in an area covering more than 51,000 km². The heart of our organization has been at Studio 2880, situated on the traditional unceded territory of the Lheidli T’enneh, since 1976. These facilities have become a destination for people who wish to purchase locally created artworks, and access and benefit from the unique educational programs and services offered there.


We will lead the development of our community into a recognized centre of creativity; a place where art has no boundaries.
