Vermont Business Magazine Stowe Arts and Culture Council has officially been named a board of the Town of Stowe, Vermont.

Stowe Arts and Culture Council (SACC) empowers and connects artistic communities to promote Stowe as a global center for the arts and was formed to establish and promote Stowe as an arts and culture destination to enhance quality of life and economic development. SACC works to collaborate with the local community to explore and promote ways to address cultural, social, and environmental issues through arts education and integration, as well as encourage commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion across all sectors of the community.

Stowe Arts and Culture Council was originally created by the Town of Stowe in 2014 to operate as an independent group promoting the arts and other cultural activities in and around Stowe, Vermont. Long known as the Ski Capital of the East, and famed for its outdoor recreation and world-class lodging, shopping and dining, Stowe, Vermont is also home to a vibrant and diverse arts and culture community. To this day, SACC continues to channel events and highlight arts and culture organizations in an online platform where ideas can be shared, spread, and organized in order to draw arts lovers to Stowe.

“We are so pleased to be an official town board—an important step in Stowe’s continued commitment to arts and culture,” said Rachel Moore, chair, SACC, and executive director, Helen Day Art Center. “We are looking forward to being more involved as council for town planning and in seeking new cross-sector partnerships to make the arts more visible, inclusive, and accessible to all the residents and visitors of this wonderful community.”

Notable achievements of SACC include Stowe Arts Week, an annual town-wide summer celebration of art exhibits and performances. SACC has worked closely with major arts and other pivotal organizations in Stowe, including the Helen Day Art Center, Stowe Performing Arts, Spruce Peak Performing Arts, the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe, and Stowe Area Association.
