The safety and well-being of our community, including our loyal volunteers and dedicated artists who make our existence possible is of the utmost importance to us at the Kiyooka Ohe Arts Centre and Sculpture Park.

We want you to know we are available online, either through our website or by contacting us directly at communications@koartscentre.
