Ecotone returns to Kelowna

Conduit Collective has once again partnered with the Okanagan Greens Society to showcase emerging and established artists in the annual underground gathering known as Ecotone.

Ecotone will feature installation art, sculpture, performance art, activism, gardening, crafts, musical, poetry and spoken word performances.

“This festival helps support the local arts community, and enables innovation to occur and be recognized,” says festival organizer, Gabe Cipes.

“The past six years have been very enlightening as to seeing the support within this community that rarely has the opportunity to gather on mass like this, and we are excited for the experience again this year.”

Music performances will include Wild Son, Killer Panda, Kinshira and Rumpus Room. There will be original art on display by a number of artists including Kristoff Steinruck, Jordan and David Doody, Meghan Wise, Ullus Collective and Rena Warren just to name a few. The corridors will be filled with tables featuring local crafters wares and activists including Curio Designs, Green City Acres, Green Peace, Scribbled Sun, and more.

Ecotone will run from 4pm to 2am on Saturday, February 2 at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, 421 Cawston Ave.

Tickets can be purchased at the door and are $10/ Students; $15/ General; $5/ Kids & Alternator Members minimum donation. All proceeds will go towards the artists that make this event possible through the Okanagan Greens Society.
