Okanagan Artists Alternative Commissions Social and Political Art

Table of Contents


Edges of Diversity, the Okanagan Artists Alternative’s commissioning program, used its Arts Partners in Creative Development grant of $106,920 to engage three BC media artists to create works that reflect on challenging social and political topics in Canada and abroad. Their work was exhibited to local, regional, national and international audiences when the Alternator Gallery hosted the Independent Media Arts Alliance national conference in 2008.

Arts Partners in Creative Development assists BC arts and cultural organizations to create and develop new works or further develop existing works. The program is in partnership with Canada Council for the Arts, Province of British Columbia, City of Vancouver, Vancouver Foundation and VANOC.
