Nanaimo Artwalk 2023   

Businesses – Purchase an Ad



Dear Local Business Owner or Manager:

The Nanaimo Artwalk is a major event in the cultural landscape of our city. It brings the
community together in a colourful way and is a boost for our downtown economy. This year
the Artwalk will be on Saturday, December 2 (10 am – 4 pm) and Sunday, December 3
(noon – 4 pm). We invite businesses to participate in Artwalk in any of the following ways:

Host an Artist

Venues that host artist(s) benefit from increased foot traffic and recognition as a supporter of the arts.
Each artist is responsible for arranging their venue and negotiating the details with the individual
business. Generally, a company commits to offering space to display the art, allowing the artist on-site
for the event’s duration, and providing access ahead of time for the artist to set up.

If you’d like to connect with an artist seeking a venue, please contact  Artwalk Coordinator Carla Miranda at

Join in the Spirit of the Event

We invite you to get creative and show your support for Artwalk! Perhaps a drink or food
special with an Artwalk theme, offer a discount for people showing their Event Guide or
create a window display that reflects the fun and creative spirit of Artwalk.

Promote your Organization

Your ad will benefit your business and help offset event costs. Consider offering a discount or promotion
within your ad. We will print at least 2,000 brochures distributed throughout Nanaimo and area – just in
time for Christmas shopping!

We offer a range of ad sizes in the Artwalk Event Guide.
