Jordan Louie was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast. Having worked in natural resources for the Sechelt Indian Band, this gave him an opportunity to go to school at NVIT in Merritt for Natural Resources. Jordan is now the General Manager for Tsain-Ko Forestry LP. Jordan enjoys the outdoors from hunting, fishing to walking the many local trails on the Sechelt Peninsula. You may recognize him from some of the local Facebook photography groups and if you see him around, he usually has his Sony camera with him.

Sunshine Coast Arts Council
Our History and Mandate:
The Sunshine Coast Arts Council (SCAC) is a volunteer-based society founded in 1966 to raise the profile of local artists and artisans. Our mandate is to broaden the opportunities for the citizens, artists and artisans of the Sunshine Coast to enjoy and participate in local cultural activities. We are a vital resource for the artistic and cultural life of the Coast community. In addition to operating the Arts Centre which includes two exhibition spaces, a music and visual arts studio, the SCAC hosts ongoing free cultural events. Our mission is to provide opportunities for Coast citizens to enjoy and participate in cultural activities, and to increase platforms for artists and artisans to share their work. We achieve this in a variety of ways including hosting exhibitions, developing public programs, delivering professional development workshops, finding platforms for young people to engage, hosting readings, screenings and talks, and providing accessible space for cultural groups to gather and work. Our annual craft fairs contribute economically and culturally to the creative sector and the broader. We work to make the Arts Centre a welcoming and open gathering place, that is community-minded and accessible for all. We seek to be a creatively vibrant and culturally relevant organisation for audiences and citizens across the Sunshine Coast.
