Kicking Horse Culture
Kicking Horse Culture serves the regional community of Golden – population 7,000 approx. – collectively known as Kicking Horse Country. We are grateful to live and work on the traditional unceded territory of the Ktunaxa and Secwépemc Nations which is also home to Métis Nation Columbia River and many diverse indigenous persons.
With significant foundational operating support from our two local governments — Town of Golden and Columbia Shuswap Regional District Area ‘A’ — KHC plays a central, leadership role in the community by engaging collaborative partnerships to deliver a broad variety of professional cultural programming, arts education, and community arts activities. We strive to make our programming as diverse and inclusive as possible. We produce and present arts and cultural activities to build upon and enhance our local traditions and further develop a strong sense of place, to help make Golden a great place to live and visit.
On behalf of the Town of Golden, KHC also manages the operations of the renovated and restored Golden Civic Centre where we stage our concert performances, and where a variety of community activities (meetings, camps, weddings, and clubs) are held.
