WELCOME TO COMMUNITY ARTS SPACE/THE OAKVILLE ARTS COUNCIL
Art encourages thought and reason, imagination and creativity. Art inspires. Art communicates. Art opens eyes, opens hearts and opens doors. Art and culture permeate our lives through individual and collective expression and experiences. Imagine what your life or our community would be like without art.
Our emphasis is on the inter-connection of groups and individuals: this is about making, sharing, learning and engaging in cultural and artistic activities. There are few pursuits as inter-generational as arts and culture; seniors and young ones sharing the same space.
A civic chain: linkage between preserving the past as in heritage crafts and skills and developing new techniques/applications in modern art, culture and music.”
Art is powerful in isolation and as a shared experience. Art is singing, playing, painting, performing, carving or weaving. It is orchestras, quartets, recitals and high school concerts. Art is collaboration – it connects generations and blends cultures. It creates pride. It is a pastime, a hobby or a professional career. Art motivates the mind, strengthens the heart and moves the soul. Art energizes the community and engages its corporate sector. It revitalizes neighbourhoods and increases tourism.
