Columbia Basin Trust is looking for local artists.

Nelson artists invited to participate in Columbia Basin Culture Tour

Artists and venues are invited to register for the Columbia Basin Culture Tour.

Call for entry: registrations are currently being accepted for artists/venues in the Columbia Basin to participate in the Columbia Basin Culture Tour (CBCT). The CBCT is a two day celebration of culture taking place August 11-12, 2012 from 10 am to 5 pm.

The CBCT is a self guided tour showcasing local arts, culture and heritage offered at no charge to the general public. Full colour tour directories will be available free of charge to the public as a guide to visit your studio, exhibition, museum, art gallery, cultural center or heritage site throughout the Columbia Basin during this special weekend event. And yes, “artists” includes visual, written, performing, media and inter-arts! Visitors love this event and are anticipating this fourth year.

Participating as a venue allows you to really connect with locals, develop a wider audience, educate the public about what you do, market your activities, and attract visitors to your community.

The CBCT allows visitors to meet the participants “behind the scenes” and allows them to: visit artists studios that may not regularly be open to the public, purchase works directly from the artists, visit art galleries, museums and cultural centres to view special interpretive displays, archives, demonstrations or performances. It is also a chance for them to meet people such as artists, curators, historians and volunteers that are such a vital part of our local culture.

Final registration deadline is  April 15, 2012

Register by March 31 and save! $40.00: Early Registration (registration packages received by March 31) or $50.00: Registration (registration package received between April 1 to April 15)

The registration fee includes: inclusion in printed directory, web page profile, placement on on-line interactive map, event signage, province wide promotional campaign. If you plan to have any special programming or demonstrations at your venue, details can be included on your web page profile.

Participating individuals and venues must be located in the Canadian Columbia Basin, the southeast

corner of British Columbia roughly bordered by the communities of Valemount, Golden, Elkford,

Creston, Rossland, Arrow Lakes and Revelstoke. Although not in the Basin, the communities of

Grand Forks and Christina Lake are again invited to participate this year.

For information or to register visit: www.cbculturetour.com. The Columbia Basin Culture Tour is a project of the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance and is funded by Columbia Basin Trust which delivers social, economic and environmental benefits to the residents of the Columbia Basin.
