Garden Island Arts Council
Garden Island Arts Council encourages greater public participation, understanding, enjoyment and appreciation of Kauai art and cultural activities. They create greater public awareness around the local Kauai art and culture that enriches the lives of both Kauai residents and island visitors. Garden Island Arts Council partners with Kauai community organizations to establish a home for arts, education and technology. Partners in this facility can effectively carry out their missions to serve the community and help build a strong economic base for the Kauai community.
Garden Island Arts Council (GIAC) is comprised of an all-volunteer board of directors who provide a year-round program of art, cultural activities and events for the benefit of residents and visitors to Kauai.
