Thank you American Friends of Whistler for sponsoring our yearly Arts Scene publication and supporting Arts Whistler’s creative community
– we all thank you!

We’ve done some amazing work elevating our local arts scene over the past few years, and the reaction to our Arts Scene has really shown us that together we can do such amazing things!
We are gearing up for our 12th edition, and the incredible support we’ve received from American Friends of Whistler allows us to continue to produce it free of charge to our community artists, creatives, and community partners.
