On Saturday, April 22nd for the 3rd year in a row we recognized three graduating artists with our 2017 Wilden Creativity Award at their graduation ceremony of UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Critical and Creative Studies.

We are excited to have the artists present some of their pieces at our upcoming Creativity Day in our new Presentation Centre in the summer.
