PEMBERTON ARTS COUNCIL
The Pemberton Arts Council formed in 2006 as a non-profit organization. The Council has grown from 45 original members to close to 100. Membership includes individuals who participate in the visual arts, photography, musicians, dance and theatre, literary arts, culinary arts, textile arts, sculpture, jewelry, interactive arts and individuals who appreciate the arts.
In 2015, the Pemberton Arts Council expanded its mandate to include cultural offers and altered its name to reflect the change. The group is now known as the Pembertons & Culture Council (PACC). Currently PACC hosts two events. The M.A.D.E. (Music Art Dance Expression) event and Mountains of Art. For more information, please visit the Pemberton Arts & Culture Council Website.
PEMBERTON CULTURAL PLAN
Cultural planning is a process of inclusive community consultation and decision-making that helps local government identify cultural resources and think strategically about how these resources can help a community to achieve its civic goals. It is also a strategic approach that directly and indirectly integrates the community's cultural resources into a wide range of local government planning activities.The Village of Pemberton Council adopted the Pemberton & Area Cultural Plan at Meeting 1291, on Tuesday, November 15, 2011.
