By contract with the City of Williams Lake, the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society has the responsibility for managing the Central Cariboo Arts Centre, located at 90 Fourth Avenue North in the retired Williams Lake fire hall.

The Central Cariboo Arts Centre is for the benefit of all residents of the City of Williams Lake and Areas “D”, “E” and “F” of the Cariboo Regional District. It provides that benefit by housing and showcasing the arts and artistic activity.

The Arts Centre is home to four tenant groups, and also has designated general space available for meetings, displays, art shows and sales, classes, demonstrations, concerts and performances by the region’s arts groups. General space may be used for functions by non-arts groups or individuals provided that their use of the room does not conflict with use by members of the arts community, and they agree to pay the appropriate fees.

Arts Centre Administrator Emily Clearwater would be happy to assist you with bookings or general inquiries:
