Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre

The Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre is located in Kelowna, British Columbia, on 8 wooded acres along a vital wildland corridor along Bellevue Creek which flows down from Myra Bellevue Provincial Park.

The Centre, managed by The University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies, has a small studio apartment for short-term visits by artists and scholars (usually no more than one or two weeks) as well as two other apartments for graduate students.  During the summer months, the Eco Culture Centre is used for art events, residencies, workshops, intensives and classes.   During the university term, graduate student residents live in the Main House.

Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre

The newly-named Woodhaven Eco Culture Centre, a former residential acreage property, features a three-suite apartment house to provide temporary lodgings for visiting artists and graduate students. Outbuildings serve as studio and workshop space, and storage. A forested area encompasses the property, replete with a seasonal stream carrying spring runoff from the nearby Bellevue Creek, along with pathways and rustic, natural vistas.
