Minister of Casual Living
minister@ministryofcasualliving.ca

The Ministry of Casual Living (MoCL) is a registered non-profit society and a member of the Pacific Association of Artist-Run Centres, exhibiting the works of contemporary emerging and mid-career artists since March 2002 at 1442 Haultain St until 2012.

Established to provide artists from all disciplines with an accessible venue for experimentation, MoCL is committed to promoting critical, self-reflective discourse, and integrating the artistic process into all aspects of everyday life.

We are located on Unceded Coast Salish Territories (Victoria, BC Canada). We operate studios at 858 Devonshire Road, in the Esquimalt Industrial Park, a window gallery generously donated by Cenote Restaurant in Millie's Lane, and the PedalBox/PaddleBox mobile Bike Cart Galleries.

If you want a show, pitch us something. We're interested in bright ideas, regardless of credentials. We never want to see your CV – ever. MoCL houses interesting things to look at, listen to and think about. We welcome your input - [email protected]
