Extras! 2017

Some of our presenters are offering extra sessions. These are offered outside the main part of the conference. Most have costs (which are not included with OVFW registration), but even the free ones must be pre-registered.

Registration is on a first come, first served basis, and are open to registered OVWF participants only. To register for the conference or for one of these extra sessions, please phone the Shatford Centre /Okanagan School of the Arts at 250.770.7668. (We try very hard not to make mistakes when we transfer information to this website, but if there is a discrepancy between what’s on our website and what’s in the appointment book, we have to honour what’s in the appointment book.)

Can’t find what you’re looking for? Ask us to add you to our please-call-me list, and we’ll contact you if more one-on-one (or any extra workshop sessions) are added.
