We love this community of creatives… why don’t you join us? 

Membership is open to anyone. You don’t have to be an artist. And if you are an artist, you can be any kind of artist (visual, musical, performing, writing, digital…). Just $40 per calendar year shows (or gets) your support for building and celebrating Arts & Culture in the Comox Valley. 

Our Poet Laureate

2017-19 COMOX VALLEY POET LAUREATE – NATALIE NICKERSON!

The second Poet Laureate of the Comox Valley, selected in April 2017,  has plenty of plans already.

And she’s open to hearing ideas from others in the community as to how she can best promote the art of poetry, cultivate poetic literacy and encourage the reading and writing of poems.

A lot goes on around this Valley in Arts & Culture.

Check out our community arts calendar, submit your own events (free), and stay up to date with all the happenings. 

There are classes, shows, exhibits, concerts, workshops, festivals, pop-up choirs, films, markets and more!
