Reflecting on twenty years as Kelowna's arts and culture hub

In November 2002, the RCA officially opened its doors to the public. Ever since, we have worked diligently to create positive impacts in our community by delivering a wide range of arts education programs, producing world-class live audience experiences, and maintaining low-cost community art programs that make quality live entertainment accessible to all. Situated on the former site of the Okanagan Grower's Supply Building, our landmark downtown campus is included on the City of Kelowna's Heritage Register and comprises some 44,000 square feet of performance, exhibition, and studio space. That space has played host to spectacular cultural events and stirring exhibitions that have allowed our community of patrons to connect over a shared love of art, culture, and creativity. As we reflect on this remarkable history, we are looking forward to another two decades as Kelowna's arts and culture hub. Join us as we celebrate and build toward an exciting future.

Telling the RCA story together


#MyRCA is a collective storytelling project that aims to tell the story of the RCA from the grassroots up. By sharing their memories and photos of the RCA over the years, our patrons, partners, and collaborators are helping us to tell an expansive and inclusive story about this unique community space, and the important role it has had in cultivating a dynamic artistic and cultural scene in the Central Okanagan.
