Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival 2018 (Aug 10-12)

Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival 2018
Disrupting Exclusion, Inviting Connection
Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre
Friday August 10th – Sunday, August 12th, 2018

Community Arts Council of Vancouver presents the second annual Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival (VOAF) offering visual and performing artists facing social exclusion and other barriers opportunities for exhibition and sales, performance and participation, connection and learning.

The 3-day free festival includes individual artists as well as organizational partners, workshops for artists and the public, and hundreds of artworks on display and for sale, alongside music, spoken word, live art, clown, and other performances in the Exhibition Hall. This year Vines Arts Festival and VOAF are co-presenting a performance series Friday on the outdoor Turntable, followed by a conversation around accessibility and Ablesim.

Disrupting Exclusion
Our primary values are inclusion and active participation towards strengthening a sense of community and creative citizenship among participants and the public. Eligible artists self-identified as outsiders and have strong creative practices, with wildly diverse aesthetics. 100% of sales go to artists, and performers are paid fees: this is a professional opportunity for outsider artists.

Free Public Workshops
The festival aims to increase awareness about Outsider Artists and to challenge stereotypes about who and what counts in the art world. The festival provides a much-needed platform for visual and performing artists to gather, learn, and share their creative scope with Vancouver. PLAN, MPA Society, Coast Mental Health, and Alternative Creation Studios are all organizing group shows, alongside 46 exhibiting individual artists.

Free public learning workshops for artists include “The Business of Selling Your Art” on Saturday at 10 AM and “Writing Grants 101” on Sunday at 10 AM.

Registration for these workshops is now open:
