South Simcoe Arts Council

Growing the Arts in South Simcoe


Welcome

The South Simcoe Arts Council is an umbrella organization composed of many individuals and groups in the area who are engaged in the arts (visual, dance, music, drama, literary, structural, architecture).

Members range from budding artists to professional artists, to business owners to supporters of the arts. The geographic area served is South Simcoe and includes the towns of Bradford West Gwillimbury, Innisfil, and largely New Tecumseth (where the office is located in the Alliston community); the two townships – Essa and Adjala-Tosorontio; and Base Borden.
