The Kingston Arts Council (KAC) is the region’s primary resource for arts information and support. Through communications, programming, and advocacy, the KAC promotes the creation, development, and appreciation of the arts in Kingston and supports artistic growth and engagement for arts organizations and artists at all levels of their careers. The KAC also administers key funding programs, the City of Kingston Arts Fund (CKAF) and the Nan Yeomans Grant for Artistic Development.
The Kingston Arts Council (KAC) provides strategic leadership and services for the arts — as funder, leader, advocate, resource and facilitator of opportunities — in Kingston and the surrounding area.
Many values make up the organizational culture of the Kingston Arts Council, but the core values that embody their deepest commitments include:

► Serving the full spectrum of arts practice in a balanced way;
► Embracing diversity, equity and inclusion as an organization and enriching the community’s understanding of equity principles;
► Ensuring organizational stability & sustainability; and
► Acting from a place of openness, transparency and accountability in all they do.
