Gabriola Arts Council’s Five-Year Strategic Plan
In the first six months of 2013, the GAC Board of Directors worked with professional arts consultant and cultural planner Patricia Huntsman to develop a new Strategic Plan.

Below are the highlights of the plan. A summary document can be downloaded here.
