Anyone interested in arts and culture in Fort St. James can get involved through some long-standing groups in the area.

The Community Arts Council of Fort St. James is always looking for new ideas and volunteers and can be contacted through President Mary Willick at 996-7620 .

There are still ongoing craft nights taking place on Thursday nights at 7 p.m. or after in the old Integris building next to Fas Gas. Free craft demonstrations are ongoing, or just bring a project to show or share.
