Growing Art in the Okanagan
The Eco-Art Incubator is a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funded research initiative at the University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus. Principal Investigators are Nancy Holmes, Associate Professor, Creative Writing, and Denise Kenney, Associate Professor, Interdisciplinary Performance, in the Department of Creative Studies. The Incubator is an umbrella under which Holmes and Kenney both create and support a variety of community-based art projects. Supported projects can proceed by our offering specific technical and theoretical support; we often provide a platform for student artists and artists to work as well as access to artist-friendly resources for conservation and ecological initiatives.
