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.

Memorial Scholarship in memory of Jane Black

Jane was a fantastic vocal teacher, very involved in music in Simcoe County for many many years and part of Barrie Branch ORMTA, which is part of the SSAC membership.
We are hoping we can get the word out & see this fund start to grow so it can carry on for many years to come! Your help would be appreciated!
