The Lake Country Museum and Archives, in partnership with the arts community of Lake Country, presents Oral Histories of Lake Country’s Artists, a selection of oral history video snapshots of our community’s artists.
The District of Lake Country is home to more than one hundred artists — visual, musical, and performing — who have played a large part in our community’s history. Their continuing contributions play a significant role in building the arts in Lake Country.
The project endeavours to preserve that history and create a legacy for future artists, researchers, and the community as a whole.
Complete interviews, raw footage, and transcripts of interview questions are available for public research at the Lake Country Museum and Archives, 11255 Okanagan Centre Road West, Lake Country, BC.
A PDF of the catalogue is available on this website. Limited copies of the catalogue and DVD are available for sale at the Lake Country Museum and Archives and the Lake Country Art Gallery for $25 per set.
The Museum plans to continue the interviews through 2015.
Funding for this project was generously provided by the BC Arts Council. In addition, partnering institutions were The Arts Council of the Central Okanagan, the District of Lake Country, Lake Country Art Gallery, Lake Country Museum and Archives and the University of British Columbia, Okanagan.
