Senullusten - Ullus Artist Run Centre

After the launch of two exhibitions, participation in the city of Penticton's Canada Day festivities and the hiring of its coordinators and adding the amount of community engagement and networking required ULLUS realized the office space provided by En'owkin was no longer adequate in size and availability.

As a result and thanks in a large part to the sudden increase in projects, artists and exhibitions ULLUS moved into a vacant portable building located on the Penticton Indian Reserve on Green Mountain Road on August 15, 2014.

While the building is undergoing minor renovations the facility and property will provide Ullus with the much needed space to begin operations as its own Artist run facility. Renovations are expectd to be complete on or around November 30th, 2014.
