The 2019 edition is now open for Artist Listings & Studio Tour Registration!

If you've been wanting to get into the Arts Guide now is the time!

The Central Island Arts Guide is open to all art forms, disciplines and practices.

That means way more than Visual Art is welcome to participate and get listed! So Musicians! Actors! Teachers! Dancers! Game Designers! This means you too!

Our goal is to be THE directory for all things creative in the Central Island Region - the go-to guide when someone is looking to hire a creative professional, or commission a piece of work, or put on a show, or take a visitor for a unique experience.

The 2019 edition is poised to be bigger and better than ever with promotional and distribution support from Discover Comox Valley and the City of Courtenay.

It's distributed year round throughout Vancouver Island, on the BCFerries and beyond.


The Studio Tour uses the Guide as a reference, and this year will also have it's own Tour Map published. All studios - art, music, dance, photography, recording, video - are welcome to participate and give visitors the opportunity to get behind the scenes, discover what you have to offer, and become your newest, biggest fan.

The 2019 Studio Tour is May 24, 25 & 26 - 10am-4pm daily, with an optional Friday Evening Party if you want to throw one!


Both products are open to artists between Parksville and Campbell River, and there are also advertising opportunities for businesses and service providers who want to show their support of our amazing Arts & Culture community!

All the details are here.

The deadline to register is NOVEMBER 15.
