Community Outreach

The Canadian Heritage Arts Society’s mission extends beyond the College to the broader community, with a commitment to preserve and promote arts and culture, and increase awareness and appreciation by making the arts accessible to all.

Each December our graduates create a nostalgic Christmas presentation made available to community groups, non-profits, and service organizations in Greater Victoria.

Public Education Sessions

Professional artists offer interactive performing arts presentations to students and the public at schools, festivals, education fairs, trade shows, and conferences.

Venue space and equipment is offered at reduced rates to emerging artists and not-for-profits to support charitable events and artistic creation.
