Get Inspired with the Kelowna Inspiration Pass

by ORL News | Sep 28, 2015

There’s no denying that the arts – be they visual, performance, literary, or music – move and enrich our lives, and that Kelowna boasts some of the finest such cultural organizations in the province. Now the ORL is piloting a program to give library card members discounts and special offers at some of Kelowna’s premier arts and culture organizations, called the “Kelowna Inspiration Pass”.

The Kelowna Inspiration Pass can be reserved through the library catalogue, similarly to a book or other resource, and picked up at any ORL branch. The Pass includes a booklet explaining the program and all of the participating organizations offers, and a pass card valid for three weeks. With these materials, pass holders can visit or contact organizations such as art galleries and museums, and musical, theatre and dance companies to take advantage of everything from 2-for-1 tickets to free annual memberships.

To date, participating Kelowna-based cultural organizations include:

  • Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art
  • Ballet Kelowna
  • Bumbershoot Theatre
  • Chamber Music Kelowna
  • Kelowna Art Gallery
  • Kelowna Actor’s Studio
  • Kelowna Museums
  • Okanagan Symphony Orchestra
  • Opera Kelowna
  • Rotary Centre for the Arts

The program will be reviewed, and more organizations may be added, as well as creating passes for other areas.

To reserve your Inspiration Pass, search for “Kelowna Inspiration Pass” in the catalogue above. Once it arrives at your local branch, you have three weeks to enjoy exclusive offers from participating institutions.
