The Lake Country Arts Council was formed and incorporated as a non-profit society this past spring. In some respects, the LCAC is an amalgamation of several smaller societies including the Lake Country Performing Arts Society, Creekside Players and Open-Air Performances.

The society has a mandate to promote and foster participation in the arts in Lake Country, to encourage the development of opportunities to perform, create, exhibit and appreciate the arts and to work with the District of Lake Country to distribute grant funding to qualified groups and individuals.
