The mission of the CHArt Society is:

  1. to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by producing public art, exhibitions, presentations and performance arts events, and by providing a forum for qualified artists to exhibit, present or perform their artistic works through participation in such events;
  2. to advance education by providing instructional seminars on topics related to the performing and visual arts to the public;
  3. to provide a public amenity, by establishing and maintaining a community centre for public use;
  4. to protect and preserve significant heritage sites by restoring, developing, and maintaining the former St. David’s United Church and Hall, located within the Maitland Heritage Conservation District, with a view to commemorating the site and educating the public about it; and
  5. to undertake activities ancillary and incidental to the attainment of the above charitable purposes.
