The Arts Council has been busy. As Chair, I can truly say that our team is stupendous. What we have accomplished in the last eight months has been the result of the passion of our directors and the people on the westside and greater Okanagan. If you are interested in getting involved with this effective and active group, contact us at swacarts at gmail dot com.
We have done the Westside Culture Days that includes an Arts and Culture All Candidates Forum, which I am told is one of the first of its kind in the area. Seating is fairly limited so we have created an Eventbrite listing to ensure those who want to reserve a seat, can. This event is free, there is no cost to tickets.
The YLW Skyway/SWAC Okanagan Art initiative which is open to all artists in the YLW catchment area. This initiative will have original Okanagan artwork available for sale in the departure lounge after security. SWAC is acting as the known shipper and all artwork will be juried. All artists from Merritt to the Kootenays, from Revelstoke to Kamloops all the way down to Osoyoos are welcome to submit work for sale at the airport.
