Art impacts all of our lives, and for almost 40 years our home has been at Studio 2880. Our Arts Council supports Music, Pottery, Painting, Dance and much more. Our artists are giving back, now is your turn, by donating to help us maintain Studio 2880. More

Art impacts all of our lives, and for almost 40 years, the center of art in the Prince George Region is Studio 2880. There, the Prince George Community Arts Council supports Fibre Arts, Visual Arts, Performing Arts and Cultural Arts. 

Our artists have provided multiple pieces as a reward for your donations. We need your help to maintain our home at Studio 2880 and now is your chance to help us and get some great artwork.

Our artists are helping because as Jennifer Pighin said, "It is the best-kept secret in Prince George and we are hoping that it will not be such a secret anymore!"

By taking part in this campaign you will help bring this secret into the open!

The other secret is this is a place for YOU. It is not just for professional artists. It is for anyone who wants to take part in, talk about, see, or learn about art!  If that is you, come see us!

Since its founding, the community arts council and its members have been providing a wide range of services and programs that have helped contribute to the spirit of innovation, ingenuity, and open-mindedness that defines the Prince George district. Our artists, performers, ensembles, artisan guilds and cultural organizations represent city residents from all walks of life.

The heart of our organization has been located at Studio 2880 for the past forty years. These facilities have become a destination for people who wish to purchase locally created artworks, and access and benefit from the unique educational programs and services offered there.

Our members come from around the region, they include:

Can you spare two minutes to save the world?

OK, two minutes might not be enough for that. But it's plenty of time for you to personalize and share a copy of our campaign.

Together we can do some good for this cause. And it won't cost you a penny—just a few minutes of your time.

Yes, I'll do it!
