When Kingston’s Grand Theatre faced demolition in the early 1960’s, a group of concerned citizens united people interested in the arts rallied together and saved the theatre from destruction. After they saved the Grand, it was clear there was a need to continue this work, and the Kingston Arts Council (KAC) was formed. The Kingston Arts Council adopted its constitution in January 1962 and was incorporated on February 18, 1963, making it Ontario’s oldest arts council.
