Deadline Extended to Nov 30.
The 2020 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.
Not a visual artist? That's GREAT! We'd love to have you join in and expose yourself to new audiences! 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 2020 Arts Guide 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 annual Studio Tour uses the Guide as a reference, and this year maps are being expanded even further for better detail. 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 2020 Studio Tour is May 29, 30 & 31 - 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!
