The Breastfeeding Art Expo is a five-year arts-and-health project that celebrates and supports breastfeeding. The project involves artists and community members from across the Interior Health region who have worked to explore the topic of breastfeeding, through art. This project is a partnership between Interior Health and Kelowna Community Resources.


Breastfeeding has important medical, social, economic and environmental benefits. This community art project aims to advocate for policies and improve cultural acceptance which will better support mothers to breastfeed.

The Art Exposition: The Art Expo will include major community artworks where professional artists worked in a team with 5 or more community members. It will include many independent art works. The art includes paintings, sculptures, photography, art dolls, Aboriginal artwork, poetry, dance, collage, live art and much more.
