VOLUNTEERS AND COLLABORATORS:
We've been putting on our weekly Thursday Express presentations in Kelowna for three years, and have recently added Tuesday Outlook in Penticton and Wednesday Showcase in Vernon. If you haven't attended one, we invite you to join us for stimulated discussions on a variety of topics, with engaged presenters.
We're planning a number of signature projects and events, and we've formed a small group to help us plan, organize and execute them. The only qualifications are a sincere interest in the arts, issues and ideas, and a willingness to collaborate with a convivial group of like-minded people committed to the culture of our community. If you'd like to be part of this elite management team, and being actively involved in determining the future and building the success of the Okanagan Institute going forward, we welcome you. To get started, please fill out the form below:
When you become a sponsor of the Okanagan Institute, your organization makes an important statement about the Okanagan's unique culture and identity.

The directors of the Okanagan Institute are Robert MacDonald and Karin Wilson. Contributors include Karen Close, Doug Hodgkinson, Edward McLean, Neil McKay, Jan Kennett and Katie Brennan. We are actively seeking others to join the team.
