The Granville Island Cultural Society (GICS)

The Granville Island Cultural Society (GICS) is a non-profit society founded in 2001 having as its mission to manage, oversee and support such cultural facilities and programs as may be effective for the advancement of arts and culture on Granville Island.  As of July 1, 2018, our managing contract on Granville Island has ended, however, we continue to remain an active organization and have broadened our mission statement to include the nurturing and support of arts and culture throughout the Greater Vancouver region.  Please stay tuned as our organization transitions into this next phase of development.  Thank you for your support over the years and we look forward to returning the favour in support of your next creative endeavour.


The Granville Island Cultural Society advances,
supports and nurtures the arts on Granville Island
and works to ensure the health, vibrancy and
diversity of Granville Island as a cultural oasis.
