One Tribe

One Tribe is an art collective formed by young people who have gone through our Thursday afternoon art and screenprinting training program and decided to keep producing art and prints. Wachiay Studio provides access to equipment and help with production, and continues the education by introducing the commercial aspects of art. Students learn about production, inventory, pricing and marketing. They keep inventory and prepare and operate a mobile booth which visits festivals and events in the community. Each design sold pays a commission to the artist, and all remaining funds go back into the program.

Shop online or visit our showroom at 1625 McPhee Ave in Courtenay, B.C. If you are between the ages of 14-29 and interested in joining the One Tribe program, get in touch or check out our One Tribe Facebook page for more info!
