SeldoviaArtsCouncil LogoSeldovia Arts Council  The Seldovia Arts Council is a nonprofit organization under the auspices of the City of Seldovia .  It is our mission ‘to provide quality arts events and arts education through performances, workshops and educational opportunities for all ages’.  We can’t do it alone.  We work in cooperation with and encourage co-sponsorship by other local organizations such as the Otter Community Center, SHARE, the Seldovia Library,  the Seldovia Village Tribe, the Susan B. English School, and the Seldovia Chamber of Commerce.

We receive support for our activities from a variety of granting agencies, including major operating support provided through grants from the Alaska State Council on the Arts.  But mostly we bring these events to Seldovia through the efforts of Arts Council members, donors, and other volunteers from the local community and beyond.  We encourage you to join us – there are many ways to have fun and lend a hand.

Seldovia Chamber of Commerce  Our Seldovia Chamber of Commerce is made up of over 50 businesses that serve the community and visitors of Seldovia.   We are all about promoting and caring for our business community and creating positive environments for business growth that promotes community strength and health!
