Event History

Over 120 years old the Caetani Cultural Centre is a 6,000 sq. ft. designated heritage house. It is situated on 1 and 1/2 acres of land on lower East Hill. The facility is operated by The Caetani Cultural Centre Society as a registered not-for-profit charitable organization. The house and grounds are property of the City of Vernon, and operated by the Caetani Cultural Centre Society. The house is the former home of renowned artist, mentor, writer, and teacher Sveva Caetani. The artist was locally known as ‘the Countess’ given her aristocratic background. She was a visionary figure in the community with a deep belief in culture, knowledge and artistic endeavours.

What Makes this event different?

The Caetani Cultural Centre (C3) is situated two blocks from beautiful downtown Vernon, British Columbia. It is within walking distance (or using public transportation) to shopping, as well as most public facilities and amenities. C3 holds scheduled events during the year for the public to access the gardens, and to engage with member artists and enjoy the facilities. Based on the length of the residency, and if it is requested, the Caetani Cultural Centre will assist in facilitating receptions, workshops, and public programming based around the participating artist’s work. As a relatively new program, C3 is interested in getting feedback and constructive criticism from participants. Residents are asked to submit an exit survey upon completion of their project. Artists-in-Residence are requested to leave a piece of art in the community, if possible.

These Self-Directed Residencies are not themed or sponsored. Fees are based and pro-rated on length of stay. Artists are to provide their own materials, food, and transportation.

Artists are responsible for their own transportation. The Caetani Centre residential accommodation is within walking distance to most downtown shopping amenities, however, a complimentary bicycle and helmet are available for the resident’s use (at their own risk).
