Event Details

FREE 2 Rivers Remix Movable Feast of Contemporary Indigenous Culture unfolds in snpintktn (aka Penticton) on March 27 2022 – LIVE/Streamed both in-person and online.

On March 27th @ 7-11 pm PST, 2 Rivers Remix (2RMX), in collaboration with snpintktn’s exciting new Ignite the Arts Festival, will present a line up of contemporary Indigenous arts and music to present ‘Awakening: First Blossoms / Spring Equinox’, the first event of 2RMX’s Movable Feast live/streaming series in 2022. The event is FREE but physical seating is limited so please pre-register if you want to attend in person at: M27.2rmx.ca

2RMX and Ignite want to acknowledge the two-year-long sleep we have all experienced, and the awakening that entails.  This special line up of artists will dust off the cobwebs and sweep up the star dust of hibernation, honouring the special time of new life being born, the time when we start to nibble on the new fresh shoots sprouting up, the time of cleansing and getting ready for the new year that is now well on its way.  If you have been feeling behind, or needing a lift, this series of performances for one night only may be just what is needed to raise the spirit and fill the vessel!

  • Rich & Beka

    Rich & Beka

    [Tsilhqot’in/ Secwepemc]

    Grounded in poetry, rap and melody, Rich n Beka are like fire and water, masculine and
    feminine elements of nature coming together in harmony. Their artistic partnership goes
    back six years, and bridges life and love – they’re engaged to be married and have a
    beautiful daughter together. Both share in the culture of the Tsilhqot’in Nation, Beka (Rebecca Solomon)
    from Xeni Gwet’in and Rich (Richard MacDonald) from Tletinq’ox, West of Williams Lake, BC.
    Rich n Beka carry the power of story, family, and community in their music. Rising up
    from the Tsilhqot’in, their music ignites the passion and presence of healing and
    resilience, the light of hope that shines when cycles of oppression are overcome.
    Unapologetic and powerful, there’s a fierce flow of Earth’s medicine through their song
    stories.

  • Ullus Collective

    Ullus Collective

    [Syilx]

    ULLUS is a word translated from the Syilx Language and is translated as “a gathering of people for a common purpose” and represents the necessary cohesion of artists to advance the Indigenous arts to mainstream audiences.
    ULLUS originated in 1982 under the Okanagan Tribal Council as the Okanagan Indian Curriculum Project and produced two short dramatic features films, “First People” (1982) and “First Contact” (1983). The Okanagan Indian Curriculum Project provided media arts training through the productions of video and audio recording, allowing participants the opportunity to both experience hands on training in broadcasting for film and television and audio recording industries and became the foundation for the collective’s beginnings. ULLUS Collective established itself as the video production company and Nak’ulamn Productions produced audio cassette recordings and tapes and eventually radio of live events and gatherings within the Southern Interior of BC.
    Forty years later, ULLUS is a collective of professional Indigenous artists supporting the creation, development and dissemination of Indigenous art, practices and disciplines to both Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal audiences.
