Participate in the 'Art Around Town' program, and get your art into the community. This allows people who might never set foot in a gallery to experience visual art. Art is displayed at the Conference Centre and the Port Theatre.


A fresh and interesting way to engage in our urban life. 


'Art Around Town' at the Port Theatre highlights Nanaimo Arts Council member paintings. All art shows have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown restrictions. The Port Theatre is closed until further notice.

We'll let you know in one of our newsletters when our next
'members-only' show is open for registration.


"Nanaimo Arts Council acknowledges with gratitude and thanks  that we are on the traditional and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw First Nation."

We acknowledge the financial assistance from

the Province of British Columbia.
