Orillia & District Arts Council

The Orillia & District Arts Council  (ODAC) became an incorporated not-for-profit in 1999 and a registered charity in 2005. ODAC coordinates funding for local arts and culture projects that engage people and use art to increase community well-being.  We connect the arts with resources.  Our Vision is a strong united creative community, working together to enhance culture in our area.  Our Mission is to empower, advocate for and celebrate all arts forms in our community and region.  We value inclusiveness, life-long learning, respect for art and artists, diversity, community and freedom of experience.  ODAC has been a driving force behind Culture Days, the Patio program, Mental Health and the Arts, Orillia Summer Nights and many other efforts.
