The mission of the Prescott-Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC) is to support the development of artists, organizations and enthusiasts of arts, culture, and heritage in the United Counties of Prescott-Russell. Its primary mandate is to discover and promote artists, organizations, and activities on our territory, to support their evolution and to bring the community to integrate cultural expression in its activities.

As Such, we are pleased to offer the CAPRAC membership in a "pay-what-you-can" format for new and renewing members again this year, in keeping with our commitment to provide tangible support to our members and ensure accessibility and visibility for the region's creative and cultural community.

The "pay-what-you-can" model allows members to determine the cost of membership that is affordable to them, while maintaining all the benefits of CAPRAC membership.
