Coast Collective Art Society Membership

Membership in the Coast Collective Art Society (CCAS) is open to everyone.  The fee is $50 + gst ($52.50) per year, non-refundable, running January – December.

Membership benefits include:

  1. Entitlement to one vote at every general or special meeting of the Society.
  2. Access to information and communications from Coast Collective including outreach opportunities such as shows, markets, events; and the ability to participate in such ‘member only’ opportunities.
  3. 5% discount on class fees (when available).

In previous years, the Coast Collective also offered various levels of membership for participating artists,  that is artists who sold their work through the Collective, based on volunteer hours contributed to the running of the centre. However, with the closure of the Art Centre due to COVID-19, we will be doing things a little differently in 2021.

As in the past, to participate as a vendor in events and showcases held by the Coast Collective Art Society, new members must first have their work adjudicated and accepted by the CCAS adjudication team. Once your work has been accepted, it is not necessary to be adjudicated again unless a particular event such as a gallery show requires jurying of all work submitted.

New to 2021 will be the fee structure for events and showcases.  Participation fees and/or consignment fees will be determined for each individual event and will apply equally to all members.

Note: It is not necessary to purchase a membership before applying for adjudication.

 

The Coast Collective Art Society (CCAS) is a non-profit BC Society.  All members must uphold the Constitution of CCAS and comply with the Bylaws.  Members are expected to attend the Annual General Meeting, upon notification of the date by the Board of Directors. Failure to comply with the terms as outlined above may result in suspension and/or termination of membership in accordance with the BC Societies Act. Click here for Constitution and By-Laws.

Artists work 1 on 1 with the businesses and the RG Coordinator manages the logistics of who goes where and when.
