FINAL Call for Artists and Venues – 2020 Columbia Basin Culture Tour

August  8 & 9, 2020
10 am – 5 pm

Participating individuals and venues must be located in the Canadian Columbia Basin (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.

Deadline extended to June 15!
Registration fee lowered to $20
SPECIAL RATE to make the event more accessible given COVID-19 impacts

The Culture Tour 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 during this special weekend event.

And yes, “artists” includes visual, written, performing, media and inter-arts!

Participating as a venue connects you with locals, develops a wider audience and educates the public about what you do. It’s also an opportunity for you to market your activities, sell your work and attract visitors to your community.

As a venue, you can exhibit, sell, demonstrate, perform, read, show special interpretive displays and offer archival visits to enthusiastic guests.

The Culture Tour is also a chance for visitors to meet the artists, curators, historians and volunteers that are such a vital part of our Columbia Basin culture!


  • $20: Registration special rate – normally $60
