the story of the ou

'Ou' like "Oooo, nice." 

a reminder to not take ourselves too seriously, to always connect back to what we love & what we're here to share

We're located in the beautiful Cowichan Valley, halfway between Victoria & Nanaimo. Make the trip to have a conversation about art, join a creative workshop, listen to live music, or find something special to take home with you.

We hope to share our journey with you by making an inclusive community space where together we can create and experience the wonderful world of art | current schedule of events here


open Saturday & Sunday from 11-4pm
