Another day, another look at one of the original BESTi organizations – the final on in our series, allow us to introduce you to Lake Country Art Gallery.
BESTi—the Building Excellence & Sustainability Together Intensive program is a partnership between Central Okanagan Foundation , City of Kelowna, the Non-profit Lifecycles Institute, Vantage Point and Valley First, a division of First West Credit Union.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, Lake Country Art Gallery presents artwork, artists, and exhibitions to engage, challenge and enrich the community. Along with its curated showcases and exhibitions, Lake Country Art Gallery also has a growing selection of community engagement programs, including educational workshops for all ages and abilities, weekly classes for special needs clients, gallery tours, art day field trips for local schools, summer camps, annual community night picnic, artisan markets, and more.
A participant in the 2021-2022 BESTi program, their consultant Kylie Hutchinson shares some insight, “Non-profit capacity building is not the kind of thing you can do off the side of your desk. The BESTi program successfully created the time and space for organizations to do some very critical reflection and action planning.” Working with Lake Country Art Gallery, “they really appreciated the opportunity to take many deep dives into all areas of their operations. As their consultant, I personally appreciated the luxury of being able to work with them consistently for a whole year.”
