ARTiculate - the first word on arts, culture and heritage in the Columbia Basin

ARTiculate magazine, 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.

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.

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.

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.

Congratulations to Nicola McGarry, awarded the 2019 ARTiculate Scholarship to attend the Tony Onley Artists' Project at Island Mountain Arts in Wells, BC. The 2019 mentors were Diana Thorneycroft & Peter Von Tiesenhausen. The 2019 Artists' Project was the biggest yet!

The 2020 Island Mountain Arts - Toni Onley Artists' Project for Professional and Emerging Artists did not happen due to COVID-19. 2021 Information will be available on the IMA website once the new programs are announced.
