Our History & Mission

For more than 20 years, the Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society has been bringing live music, visual arts, and—more recently—literary voices to the community.

A dedicated team of volunteers and sponsors supports the society in fulfilling its mission: To foster, celebrate, and promote the music, visual, literary, and performing arts of all cultures in Chemainus, Crofton, and the surrounding region. To seek funding to promote, enhance, and maintain the purposes of the society.


Our Vision & Values

The Chemainus Valley Cultural Arts Society believes the arts are an integral part of a healthy, happy community. Cutural events and activities are brought to audiences in the region, and the arts are supported through workshops, displays, and other activities.

CVCAS is inclusive. The arts in many forms, styles, and from differing cultural perspectives are supported. Keep up with current events and activities at cvcas.ca/events.
