Samoa Arts Council Website

The Samoa Arts Council (SAC) was recently launched. Who is SAC?

Well, their vision is to develop Arts for the benefit of Samoa, and their mission is to support, promote and nurture the Arts in Samoa as a viable industry in the Pacific and internationally.

The goal of SAC is to provide an avenue for artists and art lovers to access information, resources, training, exposure and income generating opportunities that would otherwise not be available to them as individuals. In addition, a united Arts Council will ensure effective representation of the Arts in national and regional policy making processes.

SAC also strives to develop links between all sectors and Government ministries and this is being achieved with the annual Dream Shows and recently with the National Cultural Industries Workshops of which SAC is a partner.  Their main focus is to provide training and support for artists, promote product development and marketing and enable artists to live off their art. This is especially needed in the village communities.

Please take a moment to view the SAC Website. I will add the link to our “Sites We Like” section of the blog.

The specific purpose for which this nonprofit corporation was formed is to support the needs of these South Pacific cultural heritage institutions by helping to preserve and make accessible records created for business, accountability or cultural purposes. The organization will endeavor to add value by providing resources or volunteers to advise, train, and work among island residents to support their efforts in building their future and preserving their collective memory through the use of modern archival techniques.
