Arts Recognition

Arts Recognition

For nearly 30 years, the Quinte Arts Council has celebrated local artists and arts organizations at the Arts Recognition Awards.

Each year, local arts champions nominate those individuals, artist groups or businesses for their artistic excellence, cultural leadership or contribution to the arts in our community.

We at The Quinte Arts Council work hard each year to advance, cultivate, promote and advocate for a vibrant and diverse arts community in the Quinte region, while supporting the new generation of artists- providing quality experiences and arts education bursaries.

Currently, we are working hard to raise funds in order to continue our arts education bursary program, the publication of the Umbrella Magazine, and the QAC Cultural Hub.
