Tweed & Area Arts Council
Established in 2006, we are a charitable, non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers. We are known for developing the Marble Arts Centre (MAC) in Actinolite, our annual ‘Art in the Park’ event, Marble Arts Student Theatre classes, many plays, concerts, movies and other events at the MAC and other venues. Our website highlights arts events, artists and artisans in Tweed & Area. In 2022, with the transfer of the ownership of the Marble Arts Centre to Tweed & Company Theatre, we are looking to the future with a new Strategic Plan and priorities!
