OKnow is a FREE listserv dedicated to bringing you all of the art events happening in the Okanagan Valley. It comes out every Thursday.|
The OKnow listserv has been created as a way to address the lack of a contemporary “art scene” in the Okanagan. There are vibrant and active individuals and arts organizations up and down the valley, each pursuing many interesting projects and initiatives. Despite all of this great work, it seems that much of it goes on largely unnoticed, operating in isolated pockets. It’s time for the Okanagan to look to and celebrates its own. We need not look to Vancouver and the lower mainland as the only source for an active contemporary art scene. We have lots of great artists, curators, writers, actors, musicians, film makers, dancers and performers working in our midst who are contributing to art on a local, national and international scale.
The aim of OKnow is to bring the isolated pockets together, to create a community that spans the length and breadth of the valley, across all artistic disciplines. OKnow will do this by providing its subscribers with a FREE weekly listing of all of the events happening each week in and around Vernon, Kelowna and Penticton, as well all other points in BC. It will cover events like openings, lectures, readings, screenings, workshops, performances, opportunities to get involved and calls for submissions.
