Sudbury Arts Council


Our mission is to Connect, Communicate and Celebrate arts in the City of Greater Sudbury. SAC connects members of the arts community with each other and their audiences. As an arts umbrella organization, it advocates on behalf of artists and promotes the arts. SAC encourages awareness and appreciation of the wide diversity of Arts, Culture and Heritage in our area.


Sudbury Arts Council brings attention and support to the artistic community in Greater Sudbury. SAC makes art accessible for everyone, encouraging participation and appreciation of art throughout the community. It advocates and promotes equally for Anglophone, Francophone, and Indigenous arts and culture groups in our city, understanding the deeply important role each plays in making up our unique arts scene, and overall culture.

We are committed to encouraging emerging artists and assisting them to establish a network within the artistic community. We strive to broaden the audience for the arts by awakening new audiences.


Sudbury Arts Council / Conseil des arts de Sudbury (SAC) is a non-profit organization founded July 31, 1974. Over its history, it was instrumental in the establishment of Cinéfest, the Artists’ Studio Tour, and the Sudbury Writers’ Guild, as well as establishing the Sudbury Food Bank’s Christmas Art Card project and Art of Dessert Evening, which are now managed independently by the Sudbury Food Bank.
