Painters to Pianists

A callout for the Who's Who online and print directory of Chilliwack artists

Released by Melissa Oren, CCAC


he Chilliwack Community Arts Council is excited to announce the launching of our new Chilliwack Arts Directory.


The directory features local artists, musicians, crafts persons, performing artists, arts instructors, arts organizations, and more.

The goal of our directory is to be a gateway for the arts in Chilliwack; a place to connect the community to the arts and artists around them. Whether you’re interested in piano lessons, dance classes, to be a part of a theatre group, or are looking to hire a band for a gala or event, the arts directory can help connect you.

The directory website is now live and can be accessed at  Here you will find convenient categories for arts disciplines, as well as a community events calendar that can be updated by the public by submitting your event.

Printed copies of the directory will be available at The Art Room (home of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council) at #20- 5725 Vedder Rd, as well as distributed to libraries, tourism centres, civic facilities and various other locations throughout the Valley.

This is a free listing for any artist or arts group, and offers a great opportunity to gain exposure for your talent or your organization. Those interested in being a part of our directory can apply online through the Chilliwack Arts Directory website.

Visit, or call 604-769-ARTS (2787) for more details. We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia.

UPDATE from Melissa Oren, CCAC

The printed directory is already out and can be picked up at our Office as well as various locations around town J People can submit online to be listed on the website at any time, and we will update it as we get the applications in. The printed directory will be done annually, and the deadline for 2015 is TBA, but will be around November 2014.
