A life without art is a life without life.
The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) promotes quality of life in Rossland by cultivating and promoting different art forms throughout the year. As a community arts organization, the RCAC hosts special events, projects and workshops to show Rossland that not only does art never sleep, but it also wears limitless hats.
