Update on COVID-19 and our temporary closure

The Nicola Valley Community Arts Council is here to play a role in helping the immediate efforts in sustaining the vital healthcare and safety of our people and emergency care.

NVCAC Headquarters, the old Courthouse Arts Gallery at 1840 Nicola Avenue will continue to be temporarily closed until further notice.   
All programming, art classes, music meet ups, including Merritt Drum Connection, Ukulele Circle, will be suspended, while Open Mic at the Kekuli Café will be postponed, and hopefully resume  Friday, April 17th.


Your NVCAC Board cares deeply about your health, and the safety of the broader community, and feel it is more important than ever to find ways to connect and celebrate creativity, culture, conversation, and community. Please stay tuned for ways you can engage the creative mind for your personal wellbeing.


Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to building our collective creative future. 

Onwards and upwards, together,

Directors of your Nicola Valley Community Arts Council

“Art making has the ability to move people along their journey of grief and loss into a more balanced place of healing and hope.  In the face of tragedy, the creative process can help re-calibrate a mourner's life."
