    The Arts and Cultural Highway is a unique manifestation of a designated area in British Columbia where a tremendous number of artists, artisans, performers and creative people of many diverse disciplines have come to reside. A place where ARTS, CULTURE and CULTURAL events new and old are literally found right off the main HIGHWAY 1 part of the Trans Canada Highway network. The ACH FOUNDATION fields its listings from among artisans and businesses supporting the arts on Vancouver Island throughout the Gulf Islands and Sunshine Coast of British Columbia on the west coast of Canada.

    Artists are drawn to the Canadian west coast because of its spectacular scenery and moderate weather. Artisans of many disciplines express their CREATIVITY in the fine arts, Theatre ( Theater groups ) sculpture, dance, performance, music, murals and a myriad of crafts and other aesthetic pursuits.
