The Summerland Community Arts Council will mark Arts and Culture Week with a number of special events and activities later this month.

The week, which runs from April 21 to 27, includes activities from many of the member arts groups in the community.

Arts and Culture Week events begin on Sunday, April 21 as the arts centre will host the Kids Zone for Earth Week.

Other activities and events are also scheduled.

Artists are encouraged to participate in a postcard challenge.

Postcard-sized submissions on the theme, Beyond Tomorrow: What My World Will Look Like In The Future, will be displayed at the centre during Arts and Culture Week.

Submissions may include hand-drawn, painted, beaded, quilted, sewn or other artistic expressions.

Postcards measuring 13 by 18 centimetres are available at the Summerland Arts Centre. The deadline for submissions is April 15.

Members of the public will be able to vote for their favourite pieces. The winners will be announced on April 30.

Each category will have a people’s choice award.

The centre will also have passports with a list of arts and culture attractions and groups.

These include the Summerland Museum, the Summerland branch of the Okanagan Regional Library, the Summerland Art Gallery and Artist in Residence Brandy Maslowski’s studio at the Wharton Street entrance of the arts centre.

Gibbs said people can have their passports stamped at each of the participating locations.

The Arts Award will also be presented during this week.

A presentation ceremony will be held at the Summerland Arts Centre on Friday, April 26 from 7 to 9 p.m.
