The City of White Rock has a vibrant and growing number of accomplished artists and crafts people, active cultural organizations and a diverse concentration of arts-related businesses. This makes White Rock a great place to live, work and play.

A great way to get involved is to join the Peninsula Arts and Culture Alliance (PACA) - check out their site and watch their video!

The City of White Rock is dedicated to working with community art organizations and artists to enhance and create spaces for arts and culture to thrive. We want to learn more about our creative community. Fill out our information page to be part of our online database here.
