Over the past two years Your Arts Council has laid its very solid foundation and begun to grow into the force for promoting sustainable Arts and Culture in Cornwall and the Counties we all need it to be. A dedicated and professional executive, backed by talented, dedicated and selfless volunteer board members, many of whom are pillars of the Arts and/or Cornwall business community, have accomplished good things benefiting the Arts and Culture sector in SD&G. We teamed up with the Art Gallery to obtain the grant to purchase a new lighting system so that its new board has part of the infrastructure it needs to achieve their vision of revitalization. We can continue to work with TAG on new projects and help to make their plans a reality. We have teamed with St. Lawrence College and Aultsville Hall to make available an inexpensive incubatory studio complex, where artists can affordably and collectively conspire and create. We've established gallery and performance space in the Aultsville Hall atrium and had several successful concerts and month-long showings of local artist’s work there. We've begun working with the Apples and Art studio tour organization to help them with their 24th annual event this September, and to help make their 25th anniversary event next year truly spectacular. We’re working with the City of Cornwall to fund the studies necessary to finance a dedicated Cornwall Centre for the Arts. We have our Art.Biz program that 'matchmakers' local businesses who want to display local art with local artists who want their work displayed. We are working with many local artists and art event organizers to find every last resource available to help them for their events to be as successful as possible. Then there’s our mentoring and workshops and promotion – and our network – all working together, for the betterment of our collective community. Please Mayor O'Shaughnessy, we don’t want YAC to stop its service to our community.
