Arts Sector Initiative

In partnership with Port Alberni's Community Arts Council, Art Rave Society, Theresa Kingston and Portal Players Dramatic Society, Community Futures is part of a steering team creating new dialogue and opportunities to connect the Alberni Valley's artists, creative practitioners, and arts supporters. The activities kicked off with 2022's Next Gen Arts event at the Alberni Valley Museum, continued with the Conversation Café facilitated activities, and started the Alberni Arts Hub. Members of the steering team continue to work together on projects that fulfill mutual goals.
