“Why we care – and why you might too”.
There’s something deep – a seed, a yearning in us when it comes to the arts. Each of us, artist or not, has had a moment when we have been profoundly moved by an artistic experience. If you have had a moment where a musical or theatre performance, a painting, a sculpture, a written verse or a simple song has enriched your life – and you feel these experiences are worth far more than a fleeting thought then, like us, you care profoundly about the arts.
Each one of us in CIAS has our own personal reasons why the arts matter to us and we imagine each of you do, too. It’s the “why” we care that inspires us to work for the best arts facilities and programs for music, theater, visual arts, dance and more in Cochrane’s future art scene.
“Who we are”.
Cochrane Integrated Arts Society (CIAS) is a non-profit society dedicated to the proliferation of the arts culture and future arts facilities in Cochrane. We want to facilitate the presentation of local, regional and national arts that are stimulating and engaging for Cochrane residents and beneficial for Cochrane tourism. CIAS is here to be a collective voice for passionate area residents like you, who want the best for all the arts in Cochrane.
