Coming Up Next Week!

Karolina Bialkowska

After a highly successful first week, the O k’inādās Residency and Summer Indigenous Art Intensive are in full swing.

Everyone is invited to attend discussions, events, and openings! We have compiled a short list of some of what’s coming up next week so that anyone who is interested and able to attend can plan ahead.

Tuesday, July 12

Eyes Closed Blind Field Shuttle

Carmen Papalia, Social Practice artist based in Vancouver, will be leading ‘Eyes Closed Blind Field Shuttle’ through downtown Kelowna. Participants are asked to meet at 9am at the Rotary Centre for the Arts.

Wednesday, July 13

Round table discussion, UNC Theatre (UBCO Campus) at noon.

Guests Adrian Stimson, David Khang, Lori Blondeau, Carmen Papalia, and Michelle Jacques will be joining us for the second of the weekly Round Table discussion series.

Last week’s highly successful talk grew out of a consideration of the notion of The Body, a body, or bodies (ours, collective, national, personal) in relation to artists’ creative practice and as a site of resistance and resiliency.

Building on last week’s panel discussion we thought we would continue the theme this week by asking our current panel to discuss how The Body might be seen as an expression of Territory and Sovereignty?”

Thursday, July 14

Aboriginal and Traditional Ecological Knowledge Keeper Richard Armstrong will lead us in welcome and in discussion of the Okanagan-Similkameen – unceded territory of the Syilx people. Please join us at noon by the Stone Circle by the pond, on campus, near Platypus House.

Kelowna Art Gallery, 7pm Opening – Deborah Koenker: Grapes and Tortillas (solo show on Mexican seasonal agricultural workers in the Okanagan).

We hope you can join us at some (or all) of the above events. It looks to be an exciting second week of the the O k’inādās Residency and Summer Indigenous Art Intensive Program.
