LANGFORD SUPPORTS THE ARTS With the population of Langford growing, so too is the appetite within the community to celebrate the arts. The City of Langford supports arts in various ways. Annually, the City helps fund the West Shore Arts Council, which is the lead advocate for public understanding of, participation in and appreciation of arts, culture and heritage. The council puts on a number of events throughout the year to highlights the arts, including Light Up the Hills. As part of the annual event held after dark, residents use handmade lanterns and walk along the pathway from Belmont Secondary school to the Westhills playground. Along the way, there are illuminated art installations of various art forms. Langford is also a big supporter of the Coast Collective Gallery and Arts Centre, which opened its new space in January 2016 and has drawn thousands of visitors to discover and enjoy the arts on the West Shore. It is a dynamic, inspiring centre promoting art and culture, connecting community members of all ages through creative expression and explorations. Gallery exhibits bring the works of talented emerging and established Canadian artists and artisans to the public at an accessible location. An Artisan Gift Shop showcases juried handmade works that celebrate the artistry and craftsmanship of southern Vancouver Island. Exceptional, innovative, international-calibre instructors encourage the pursuit of excellence and fun for artists of all ages and abilities.
