Community Arts Council of Fort St. James

Arts-Family Activites-Night Life

The Community Arts Council of Fort St James was established in 1979 by a group of dedicated volunteers and continues to be driven by volunteers as a means to foster arts and culture in the Fort St James area.   As community interests began to shift, the Arts Council shifted its programming to meet the needs, which included a physical space.   In 2013 volunteers began the renovating the ‘old court’ house on Birch street to become the Arts Council’s permanent home.

Pope Mountain Arts opened in the spring of 2016 becoming a vibrant community hub, where people can and do enjoy being immersed in a wide range of art genres through workshops, programs and events. We have a small gallery and host art shows 2 – 3 times per year.  In 2017 the Weaving/Fibre Arts Studio opened and the Pottery Studio is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Community Arts Council the annual fee is $5.00.

Please contact the Pope Mountain Arts Program Manager if you would like to become a member, have workshop ideas, are interested in facilitating a workshop or would like to have an Art Show in our gallery.
