The second annual Beat Salad event, will be held on Friday July 10, 6pm at Woodhaven. This event is an artistic smorgasbord of poetry, prose, live music and a 100-mile potluck, where attendees will bring dishes made from Okanagan ingredients.
“Beat Salad is the perfect mix of cultural event and natural splendor, held at one of Kelowna’s more exciting arts venues,” said Clayton McCann, host of last year’s show. Beat Salad is an annual poetry/musical night hosted by UBC Okanagan’s Faculty of Critical and Creative Studies in partnership with the Regional District of the Okanagan.
Join writers W. Mark Giles, Michael V. Smith, Laisha Rosnau, Joan Crate, Matt Rader and others, along with artistic director Lucas Glenn for an evening of original works and Beat performances, live music by Rhoneil, with wine and cheese and all things delicious.
