The festival returns to Kelowna for its sixth year on January 14 and features artists from France, Montreal, Vancouver, the United States and Okanagan.
“It has to do with how we as humans treat non-humans,” said Neil Kadger of the Festival of Living Things.
“We offer all the different specialties in different pieces throughout the festivals, so there’s really a variety.”
