In a new project, supported by the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors program, Comox Valley Arts is very pleased to offer a series of FREE workshops, artist talks and Ask Me Anything sessions.

Comox Valley is home to many 100s of experienced, established and well-known artists across an array of genres. PRACTICE is a sharing process to capture and distribute the incredible stories of their creative journeys. Through livestream, podcasts, video and blog posts, we will visit with and explore the lives and creative practices of many of these artists, as well as offer an education stream covering many areas of creative practice.

We're happy to announce the first sessions:
