About Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council (WACC)

Our Mission

The Wilsonville Arts & Culture Council is a community organization committed to provide a variety of family-centered art and culture activities in Wilsonville. This is done to educate, entertain, enhance a positive community image, attract visitors, share the cultural experience of our community, encourage unity, promote the education of our rich history and foster civic pride. The goal is to provide “Something for Everyone.”

History

The Wilsonville Arts and Culture Council was founded in 1995 by Theonie Gilmore, who had a vision to create access to arts and culture in Wilsonville for everyone and create a uniting force for various events in our community.  Over time, the festival has developed into one of the top events in Wilsonville and provides an outlet for both local and regional artists, and serves as an educational resource for youth.

The Wilsonville Festival of Arts presents visual, performing and literary – school, community and professional artists.  The art festival and special events help define the City of Wilsonville, attract new business, and stimulate local economic growth.

After 17 years presenting the Wilsonville Festival of Arts, Wilsonville Arts and Culture Council has maintained its philosophy of “Art and Culture for Everyone” by continuing to act as an umbrella or sponsor for local events throughout the year.
