We are an Okanagan based Art & Culture website dedicated to finding and showcasing the best and newest events, artists and activities going on in the Okanagan Valley.
oook.ca officially launched on June 30th, 2011 – yeah us! oook.ca began as a side project by aritst and curator Katie Brennan. Initially called OKnow, oook.ca began as a listserv in October 2009. It was created as a way to address the lack of a contemporary arts and cultural scene in the Okanagan. OKnow did this by providing its subscribers with a FREE weekly listing of all the events happening each week in and around Vernon, Kelowna, Penticton and all points in between. It listed things like: openings, concerts, lectures, readings, exhibitions, screenings, workshops, classes, seminars, forum, performances, volunteer opportunities and calls for submission, etc.
In December 2011, Katie Brennan began collaborating with Jason Vance, a graphic designer and business collaborator (he’s in the business of helping others with their business). After many months of planning, oook.ca was born.
To date, oook.ca is created FOR FREE through the work of Katie and Jason and their merry band of oook collaborators – see our contributors page to meet these great folks!
If you like what you see here and you’d like to tell us about it and/or you’d like to contribute to oook.ca, we’d love to hear from you.
