Arts Society King (ASK) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization established in 2005. 

Vision: Enriching King Township through arts and culture for all.

Mission: Arts Society King promotes, supports and advocates for arts and culture through effective partnerships and innovative events and programs.

Our donors are a diverse mix of private citizens and businesses and members are primarily artists. Citizens choose to support ASK initiatives and artists join to gain valuable exposure and opportunities. Donations and membership both support cultural activities in King Township.

One of Arts Society King’s most effective partnerships is with King Township (KT) who has recognized the boundless value of arts and culture within our community.  King Township has acknowledged ASK as an important contributor of cultural experiences that help maintain and fulfil King’s socio-cultural identity.
