2017 Creative Spaces Summit at The Laurel Packinghouse

1304 Ellis Street, Kelowna, BC V1Y 1Z9

Kelowna hosts 2017 Creative Spaces Summit

Tuesday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m

The 2017 Creative Spaces Summit will be held on Tuesday, June 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Laurel Packinghouse, 1304 Ellis Street.
In 2016, more than 200 local artists shared information about the spaces they work in, challenges they were encountering in accessing creative spaces, and ideas for change.
The purpose of the summit is to share findings from these consultations and continue the conversation about creative spaces in Kelowna. The event features speakers from three successful creative hubs in Vancouver, and the opportunity to learn about new projects and resources in Kelowna, which might help artists improve their access to creative spaces.
“Kelowna’s arts community is growing and changing,” says Sandra Kochan, Cultural Services Manager. “Existing arts production spaces are in high demand. As we plan for the future, it’s important to understand what artists need, and explore new models and solutions. This event builds on the work done last year, and creates another opportunity to talk about solutions.”
Also featured is a presentation about SpaceFinder BC, a free online service that matches artists and art organizations with spaces that fit their needs. SpaceFinder BC is a free-to-list, free-to-search online database that enables artists and arts organizations to search for creative spaces that meet their needs in terms of location, amenities, availability, pricing, and more. Venues can create listings with photos, rental rates and equipment, and upload a digital calendar to the site so that bookings can be made directly through the SpaceFinder platform.
For more information about SpaceFinder BC, visit spacefinderbc.org.
The Summit is free, but registration is requested through Eventbrite.
Free parking at the Library Parkade is available for up to 30 participants. Attendees can contact Caroline Ivey at civey@kelowna.ca to arrange a spot.
For more information on arts, culture and heritage in the city, visit kelowna.ca/culture.
