We are committed to bringing community development to Ymir in a sustainable way so that all local residents can benefit from what we do.

 

Our Mission

The purpose of the Society is to cultivate awareness and skills focusing on both the Arts and Sustainability, through the use of community education and initiatives. We strive to bring professional level artists and facilitators to our community, with a focus on developing and providing opportunities for youth.
