The purpose of the Cowichan Valley Arts Council is to encourage and foster appreciation of the broad spectrum of arts and culture in the Cowichan Valley Region (CVRD), by serving artists and residents through advocacy, by building connections and partnerships and by enhancing both exposure to and participation in arts and culture.

It is a member-driven community arts council, which embraces many annual projects: the annual Cowichan Valley Fine Arts Show; the Teeny Tiny Artworks show; Verse and Vision and the Youth Outreach Program (YOP) as well as workshops and speakers and a variety of shows throughout the year exhibited in the two galleries managed by CVAC.
