Registrations are being accepted for artists/venues in the Columbia Basin to participate in the seventh annual Columbia Basin Culture Tour, a celebration of culture taking place August 8 and 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The self-guided tour showcases local arts, culture and heritage offered at no charge to the general public. “Arts” includes visual, written, performing, media and inter-arts. Participating as a venue allows you to connect with locals, develop a wider audience, educate the public about what you do, market your activities, and attract visitors to your community.

The tour allows visitors to meet the participants behind the scenes and allows them to visit artists’ studios that may not regularly be open to the public, purchase works directly from the artists, visit art galleries, museums and cultural centres to view special interpretive displays, archives, demonstrations or performances. It is also a chance for them to meet the people behind the scenes that are such a vital part of our local culture.

Full colour tour directories will be available free to the public as a guide to visit your location. Signage, posters and postcards are provided to promote your participation. Your web page profile will also remain for the rest of the year and will list your contact hours outside of the event.

Registrations received by March 31 are $40. After that it’s $50. The final registration deadline is April 13.

To register visit: cbculturetour.com. For information call: 250-505-5505 or  1-877-505-7355.
