Discover art, culture and creativity at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s Cultural Collaboration

Event celebrates the incredibly diverse art community in Chilliwack and the Centre’s 8th anniversary

You’re invited to celebrate the incredibly diverse art community in Chilliwack with the annual Cultural Collaboration and the Centre’s eighth anniversary.

On October 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Chilliwack Cultural Centre will be hosting more than 20 fantastic organizations that will be showcasing their artistic specialties while also providing information on all the ways to get involved with the arts within the community.

The Society’s partners—the Chilliwack Academy of Music, the Chilliwack Players Guild, Chilliwack Visual Artists Association, Chilliwack Lion’s Club, Chilliwack School of Performing Arts, as well as many others—will have information booths letting the public know what programs are available.

Explore the Artist Village where you’ll see beautiful finished pieces of art and meet artists and artisans who can explain how they achieve their craft.

The Centre Art Studios will also be open for you to witness artists taking advantage of Open Studios and creating stunning pieces of art right in front of you. But it doesn’t stop there, though, because the Rotary Hall Studio Theatre will be filled with local talent performing snippets from music to dance to theatre.

Children will also be able to get involved in the favourite annual scavenger hunt.

While they make their way around the Centre, you can learn about what programs will be available for your kids, or gather information about the Society’s available art classes. From Theatre Peeps and Magic Mud to Introduction to Anime, there is something to inspire any child’s imagination, and you can even sign them up right on the spot at the Centre Box Office.

After all of that discovering and exploring, one is bound to work up an appetite, so stop by the hot dog stand located out front of the Centre or indulge in complimentary cake and refreshments that are available inside.
