Welcome to the Cowichan South Arts Guild
We are an arts guild whose vision is to promote the visual and performing arts of South Cowichan. (Mill Bay, Cobble Hill and Shawnigan Lake, BC)
The Guild facilitates opportunities for artists and community members to create a variety of cultural activities. These can include dance, music, word and visual arts events that enhance the lives of people within the communities and attract others to visit the beautiful South Cowichan area.
2018 Events are being planned NOW, including a new "ARTS Workshop Sampler Series" for all our members!
A CALL TO ARTISTS and for fun volunteer positions is out now for these events, click on our EVENTS page for more details on how to get involved!
