About Us


The Art Rave Society of Alberni is dedicated to supporting the arts and artists in our area. We believe the arts offer an opportunity to express our values, build bridges between cultures and to create community.

We are committed to providing the Alberni Valley with free, family oriented, collaborative art experiences. And to providing an annual bursary for an ADSS graduate who is pursuing post-secondary studies in the the Arts.


 The name of the society is Art Rave Society of Alberni.

The purposes of the society are:

  1. To promote and celebrate the arts by organizing an annual arts festival.
  2. To provide a venue at which artists can display their works of art for the public.
  3. To raise funds to provide a scholarship for up and coming artists in the community.


The bylaws of the society are those set out in Schedule B of the Society Act.
