The Arts & Culture Roundtable in Elliot Lake (ARIEL) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing a strong voice for arts & culture in the City of Elliot Lake. It facilitates collaboration between artists, organisations, business and government and contributes to economic development and quality of life.
ARIEL envisions a unified artistic community where citizens bring together their multitude of talents and experiences to enrich the City of Elliot Lake.
ARIEL is an organisation that believes art and culture improve a community’s quality of life and that these should be accessible to all who wish to experience or partake in them.
We believe in:
- The value of a vibrant arts and cultural community in the creation of a healthy society.
- Valuing the contributions of all our members.
- The value of encouraging artistic practice from traditional to experimental, established to emerging.
- Celebrating both local culture and the multitude of diverse cultures that define Canada.
- The value of a coordinated and cooperative arts community.
- The value of having clear goals, developed in consultation with the arts and culture community, to guide long and short-term operations and initiatives.
