We exist to celebrate & energize our community through the arts.
Much of this happens in THE Christina Lake Welcome & Arts Centre.
THE Building's DESIGN REFLECTS HISTORICAL KOOTENAY
ARCHITECTURE, LINKING IT WITH THE AREA’S RICH HERITAGE. IT Is home to the Gallery and
many of our live performances.
What We've Achieved
In 2012 The Boundary District Arts Council BDAC honored CLAAS for its outstanding
contributions to The Arts in The Boundary Region. The same year we were nominated by KAST
(Kootenay Association For Science & Technology) for top innovative organization; we were thrilled
to be among the top four finalists. CLAAS did attain a Top Innovative Community Organization
Award from Community Futures.
