As the regional arts council for the Columbia Basin, we provide training, consultation, communication and coordination for local arts council efforts within the Columbia Basin. We collaborate and non-competitively assist in carrying out local arts councils’ activities more effectively. We also bring to bear regional and provincial issues and perspectives and share assistance and expertise that may not be available at a local level.
