The mission of the Arts and Cultural Enrichment (ACE) Committee is to organize programs and events that expose our communities to new experiences, cultures, and viewpoints. ACE provides access to the arts and fosters a spirit of inquiry, creativity, and reflection at Great Basin College.
The annual GBC Film Festival and other artistic ACE projects are funded, in part, by grants from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, and the WESTAF TourWest grant program. The ACE Committee is also responsible for the Argentum literary magazine. Visit the Argentum web page and learn how you can contribute your own literary and artistic talents.
