Gabriola Arts Council (GAC) respectfully acknowledges that the land on which we live and create is the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation whose presence here reaches back to time immemorial. GAC respects and affirms the inherent rights and title of Snuneymuxw First Nation.

We endeavour to honour Coast Salish land and its treaties by strengthening our relationship and responsibilities to them. We are grateful to Snuneymuxw First Nation, who continue to share their knowledge about the history of the lands and water and their relations to them. We believe that the Arts can contribute to the healing and decolonizing journey we all share together and commit to honouring Indigenous self-determination, sovereignty and resurgence.

2022 Thanksgiving Studio Tour

Join us on Gabriola Island for our annual Thanksgiving Studio Tour October 8-10th 2022.

Studios will be open to the public from 10am-5pm each day of the tour.

This year 65 artists are participating in the Tour in 56 studios. While some have physical studios, others might share their work with you on their kitchen table or in their workshop. It's all about the art, not the space.
