Vancouver Outside Arts Festival

Community Arts Council of Vancouver presents the third 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.

The 3-day free festival takes place at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre and includes 150+ exhibiting and performing artists as well as organizational partners, free public workshops, and hundreds of artworks on display and for sale, alongside aerial silk acrobatics, Cantonese opera, intergenerational dance, wild live performances, and a range of musical stylings throughout the weekend.
