« Community Arts Council of Vancouver presents the 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. VOAF is Canada’s first and only festival for Outsider Art, which is represented by significant fairs and museums globally. The artists may be self-taught or trained: they are all devoted to their creative practices, and come from a point of view that is outside the mainstream art world trends.
VOAF is dedicated to supporting self-identified outsider artists who face social exclusion and other visible/invisible barriers to sharing their work.
Organizations working with socially excluded artists please contact us about group collaboration opportunities.
We are planning a workshop series focused on supporting artists to get their work and their stories online, leading to a live stream festival launch and an online exhibition in December 2020! »
