  • ACS ART SPOT: Resource Centre

    We currently have information of value to individuals involved in the arts, professional and non-professional performers, with regard to government agencies, foundations or businesses that provide financial assistance and publicity including media contacts.

    We also have the Newton Cultural Centre which offers a variety of spaces you can rent for exhibitions, Readings, Auditions/Practices, Meetings and many other purposes.

    Further, renting any space in the NCC for your event gives you unprecedented access to market your event through ACS email blasts, website and multi-media social platforms. With over 400 Members at your fingertips – you need to look no further than the ACS for all your artistic needs as you develop your career.

    It is the intent of the ACS to continue to build upon our ‘ART SPOT: Resource Centre’ in order to provide you with links and access to the information, spaces, businesses, governments and money you need to succeed. If you have contacts/links that you would like to share with other artists and is not currently on our list, we would encourage to you send it to us at info@artscouncilofsurrey.ca for inclusion in our ART SPOT!

  • SERVICES: Office

    The Arts Council of Surrey has available a number of office services for its members. Services are provided on an “at cost” basis as available. This includes photocopying, computer assistance and use of fax machine. For more information about these services, please contact the Office Administrator.

  • SERVICES: Other

    As an umbrella organization for many groups, we look forward to initiating new services to benefit the growth of the arts in Surrey. If a group has any requirements, which are not presently met by the Council, we would be happy to discuss them.

  • PROJECTS: Co-sponsorship

    The ACS is proud of the support we provide our many members. Another area we offer assistance is in the co-sponsorship of special projects. While too numerous to list, the ACS has worked with members on producing such highly successful annual events as: the Christmas Treasures Craft Fair, the Surrey Secondary Art Exhibit and the Cloverdale Blueberry Festival.

    In addition to member projects, we also do several events in partnership or cooperation with the City of Surrey. From Canada Day to the Fusion Festival – the ACS will work with all art lovers to produce the best events possible for the advancement of the arts and artists in Surrey.

  • NEWTON CULTURAL CENTRE [ACS HQ]

    In 2010, the ACS, the City of Surrey and three levels of government changed Surrey Art history with the restoration of the old Firehall #10 in Newton. This state of the art restoration turned the old Firehall into the new HQ for the Arts Council of Surrey. Named the Newton Cultural Centre [NCC] it is a thriving cultural centre in the heart of Newton.

    As an artist, performer or writer, or as someone who lives and/or works in Newton, or anywhere on the Lower mainland, you can take advantage of the centre's economical rental rates and book your event or ongoing activity into one of these three easily accessible, affordable, and currently available spaces.

    All spaces are wheel chair accessible and a lift is available. Parking for 25 vehicles. Full services, utilities and amenities.

AWARDS & RECOGNITIONS

Throughout the Ages, the Arts have had to rely on patrons to survive. While it is not a matter of survival in today’s’ Art world, the Arts still benefit greatly from the support and generousity of the non-arts and business communities at large. To this end, the ACS gives out two important distinctions at the annual AGM.

The first is the ‘Business & the Arts’ Award. This award recognizes a business that has shown itself to be a true patron of the Arts with their support. The second award is ‘Outstanding Service to the Arts’. This award can be given to an individual or entity that has given a significant amount of time and/or service to the advancement of the Arts.
