Our Mission

We support, promote and celebrate our vibrant, inclusive arts community.

Our Vision

The Comox Valley Community Arts Council works to facilitate and animate arts and culture in the community. Through our involvement in a wide variety of cultural activities, workshops, events, festivals, exhibition spaces, seasonal programs, and support of members groups, we actively educate and promote the Comox Valley as a creative and dynamic arts producing center.

Creating Community

Since 1965, the Comox Valley Community Arts Council has acted as an advocate for emerging arts and culture in the Comox Valley. We serve the community – inviting artists of all kinds to participate in our events and providing support to those who are pursuing higher artistic excellence.

Who do we serve?

Ultimately, we serve our community. Our membership is comprised of artists of all disciplines, and is open to anyone. Although we are often viewed as visual-art centric, we absolutely welcome and embrace creators in every genre. From a community perspective, we see our position as one of an umbrella – assisting and supporting the myriad other arts groups and individuals who have chosen the Comox Valley as their muse.

The arts are intrinsic to life. The arts touch everything. Everyday.

By supporting Comox Valley Arts, you support, grow, enliven and invigorate the spirit of our community. Donate today.
