Arts, Culture and Heritage Strategy

The District of Squamish recognizes that art, culture, and heritage play significant roles in enhancing civic pride, defining community identity, and attracting the talent and investment needed for cities to grow and thrive.

The District is developing an Arts, Culture, and Heritage Strategy to strengthen the cultural richness of our community. This multi-phased strategy will aim to identify opportunities to improve and expand access to experiences throughout our community.

Get Involved:

We are looking for community feedback on what you currently enjoy and what you would like to see more of when it comes to arts, culture and heritage experiences in Squamish.

Watch for public engagement opportunities this summer at festivals and events throughout Squamish, after which deeper consultation with stakeholder groups across our community will take place.

Launch the survey to let us know what you think.

    It's been great to see things picking up in the departments of Arts & Culture in Squamish. All of the festivals and markets this year have been incredible. Not sure if this applies here but a movie theatre / bowling alley could somehow be incorporated with a theatre and could supply hours of entertainment for people / couples, parents looking for things to do.

    Lets put Squamish on the map for arts and culture. There are so many incredible musicians/artists here, but with very few spaces to display their talents. Imagine an incredibly vibrant venue that showcases local talent as well as artists from far and wide. Let’s take this town to the next level!

    We need a live, multi-use performance theatre for 500-800 people. Music, theater productions, ect. It would be AMAZING!

    More arts and culture please!

    Yes! Squamish is in need of a bigger multi purpose event space. Dance recitals, theatre shows and live music. A place like the Commodore in Vancouver... That would be amazing!

    Music and culture is very important. We need venues like this!

    As a working musician based in Vancouver, and a B&B host, I can say a new venue in Squamish would be a highly prized destination. Arts and culture make communities buzz, and that attracts folks from everywhere.
