The Burnaby Arts Council (BAC), was established in 1967 to fundraise for a Burnaby based public art gallery. The DLG, a 1960’s Arthouse, backing onto Deer Lake, features 750 sq. ft of exhibition space and hosts a wide variety of art forms by individual artists and cultural organizations from across the Greater Vancouver area.
In its 50+ years, the BAC has continued with its mandate of supporting, promoting and expanding the arts throughout Burnaby. Furthermore, the Council plays a pivotal role in providing leadership to emerging artists and established art groups alike; the BAC showcases creative talents and provides opportunities for involvement in community culture events and projects.
The DLG resides on the ancestral and unceded homelands of the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ and Sḵwx̱wú7mesh speaking peoples. We are grateful to be on this territory, fostering arts and creativity within our communities.
