Welcome to the Edmonton Arts Council Online Portal
The Edmonton Arts Council is a not-for-profit organization that supports and promotes the arts community in Edmonton. The EAC works to increase the profile and involvement of arts and culture in all aspects of our community life through activities that:
Invest in Edmonton festivals, arts organizations and individual artists through municipal, corporate and private funding.
Represent Edmonton’s arts community to government and other agencies and provide expert advice on issues that affect the arts.
Build partnerships and initiate projects that strengthen our community.
Create awareness of the quality, variety and value of artistic work produced in Edmonton.
The Edmonton Arts Council acknowledges the traditional land on which Edmonton/Amiskwacîwâskahikan sits, the Territory of the Treaty 6 First Nations and the homelands of the Métis people. We would like to recognize and thank the diverse Indigenous peoples whose ancestors’ footsteps have marked this territory for centuries such as: Nehiyawak/Cree, Dene Suliné, Nakota Sioux, Saulteaux, Niitsitapi/Blackfoot, as well as the Métis and the Inuk/Inuit peoples. It is a welcoming place for all peoples who come from around the world to share Edmonton as a home. Together we call upon all of our collective honoured traditions and spirits to work in building a great city for today and future generations.
