About Us

Established in January of 1987, after six years as a project of the Municipality of North Cowichan, the Chemainus Festival of Murals Society is a registered, non-profit organization directed by an elected Board of Directors.

The purpose of the society is to manage and develop the mural project.

Each mural is copyrighted by the Municipality of North Cowichan with the Chemainus Festival of Murals Society acting on behalf of the artists, the Municipality, and the community as a whole.

The society is strongly supported by the community, and functions through revenues generated by sales of copyrighted souvenirs, grants, corporate sponsors, and generous donations of time and money by volunteers and members.
