Culture Days was initiated by the Canadian Arts Summit in 2010, inspired by the success of Québec’s Journées de la culture weekend. It has since generated enthusiastic interest, participation, and support from a growing network of artists, organizations, municipalities, media, and both the private and public sector across Canada. After a decade of success, Culture Days has expanded beyond the weekend to support year-round communications initiatives aimed at strengthening the sector and inspiring public discourse about the value of arts and culture.
New this year! Rotary Centre for the Arts launches the Kelowna Arts & Culture Festival, during Culture Days!
As time continues to tell her story, we, the inhabitants of the unceded and traditional territories of the Syilx/Okanagan People are painting a picture with our daily activities. This year we are looking to celebrate our SIGNATURE IN TIME at the Kelowna Arts & Culture Festival!
The 2019 theme, “A Signature in Time” is a reminder that the things we do every day contribute to making this city alive. It is a tribute to living life through time, space and within all its forms and shapes. From the banker to the janitor, the poet, including those we have chosen to call homeless, we all live together in this theatre of life enacting the story of KELOWNA.
Art is the vessel that gives form to our culture. She mirrors our doings, captures our moments and weaves them into the fabric of time. It is therefore, through the celebration of the arts that we take a moment to seek, understand and appreciate the narratives we have created and are continuing to create by simply being.
Vancouver based choreographer, Jennifer McLeish-Lewis, is looking for male and female dancers, physical theatre performers and actors for an upcoming creation in 2020 in residency at the Rotary Centre for the Arts. Adults 18+ with high school diploma. Experience in contemporary/modern dance and ballet a plus. Actors with physical embodiment training are encourage to apply.
The audition takes place Sunday, September 29 from 9am-11am in the Salloum Rehearsal Hall at Rotary Centre for the Arts.
