Rotary Centre for the Arts is managed by Kelowna Visual and Performing Arts Centre Society (KVPACS). We are a non-profit charitable organization that strives to nurture the arts through diversity, entertainment and education. Your support helps bring more arts opportunities to more people in our community.
With 2022 upon us, the RCA is asking our community to help us build toward another twenty years as Kelowna's arts and culture hub. As we begin to celebrate 20th anniversary, our staff is hard at work imagining an exciting year of innovative arts and culture programming. This will be a year of bold events, ambitious audience experiences, and compelling storytelling—all designed to help our community reconnect, and to chart a new path forward for arts and culture in downtown Kelowna. But to make it all happen, we need your help. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a serious toll on arts and culture organizations like the RCA. So even as we build, we are working to recover from a 64% decline in operating revenue over the past year. Now is your chance to help us build and grow in a complex new world. In late 2021, the team at Kelowna Capital News gave us some space to recap the turbulence of the past year, but also to celebrate what our remarkable community has achieved and shared, despite it all. Take a look here, and consider contributing to the RCA. Every bit of support matters.
