Why Support GAC?


GAC’s reputation for producing first-rate professional programs and festivals is excellent, and applauded by audiences and performers alike.


80% of our audience is from Gabriola, and the remaining 20% are theatre- and festival-lovers from Vancouver Island, other Gulf Islands, the Lower Mainland, and visiting tourists from around the world. We have almost 800 members who receive our e-newsletter every two weeks.

The Bottom Line

building community partnerships is a great way to enhance your reputation and build your customer base. Let your good name shine by aligning it with GAC and our supporters—the finest businesses on Gabriola.

The Greater Good

Studies show that communities require a healthy, vibrant arts community to effectively support health and wellbeing. Your sponsorship of the Arts Council is an investment in Gabriola’s economic and social prosperity.
