ARTiculate - the first word on arts, culture and heritage
in the Columbia Basin
the first word on arts culture and heritage
in the Columbia Basin, is a free, twice yearly publication
that covers arts, heritage and cultural stories
and events throughout the Columbia Basin.
For information on ad rates or how to submit events, story ideas, news, film, book and music releases, scroll to the bottom of this page.
COVID-19 protocols continue to impact our communities. At time of printing the magazine content was current, but events may change. Please check venue and artist websites for the most current information.
We would like to encourage those that are in a position to do so, to consider supporting local artists and arts organizations by purchasing a membership, donating (even a modest amount, everything helps) or purchasing local artwork, music and books online, directly from the artist or from a local venue. Many local galleries and book stores now have convenient online shopping and curbside pickup options.
If you would like free copies of the magazine for distribution at your place of business or to be added to our mailing list, contact us. WKRAC is a registered charity. Donations are appreciated; donors will receive a charitable receipt.
