What do we want?
A more creative Port Alberni!
When do we want it?
Join a spirited dialogue session with Port Alberni’s creative minds as we focus on the concept of Port Alberni as a Vancouver Island Arts Hub.
- What comes to mind when you think of “Arts Hub”?
- What does it mean to be part of a Vancouver Island arts ecosystem?
- How can we shine a spotlight on our collective creativity?
As always, come prepared to meet new people, share your creative know-how, and be part of the growth of our creative city.
**NEW** Event kicks off with a presentation from career artist Gordon Dick about the different visual signatures of regional art forms. What makes Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakiutl, and Coast Salish art forms different from each other? Learn to recognize those key differences and broaden your understanding of our island’s longest-running art form.
Thurs. Nov 3
@Ahtsik Gallery & Gordon Dick Studio

What is the Conversation Cafe?
A meeting of the Alberni Valley’s creatives in a chill local setting where we give voice to key issues in the creative sector, learn about opportunities and challenges at the local level, and plot our way forward in the new realities of our changing community.
