Support community arts, keep on top of the latest arts news and gain advocacy for your art form by joining the Tofino Arts Council. Membership provides many individual benefits as well as continuing to support arts and cultural activities including exhibitions, workshops, community art events and programs - helping to build a vibrant arts community here in Tofino and Clayoquot Sound.

You do not have to be an artist to be a member. In fact, non-artist members are especially welcome because your direct support of the art community goes a long way to making the Tofino the amazing place it is!
