It's an event six weeks in the making.

Since the beginning of November the Penticton Art Gallery has invited a range of artists to go beyond a typical exhibition.

Each Friday the artists staged a musical extravaganza at the gallery, followed by weekend workshops on the art, culture and concerns of their communities.

Topics ranged from DJ'ing to community building; First Nations hip hop to sustainability and more.

It all comes to an end with a big party this Friday -- also a rather auspicious day for those concerned with the Mayan calendar.

Daybreak's Gillianne Richards was sent on a cultural reconnaissance mission to find out the story behind the happening.
