Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival
AUGUST 10-12, 2018

Community Arts Council of Vancouver’s second Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival built on the success of the first achieving greater measurable results and more intangible impacts with an ambitious melding of visual and performing arts. The Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre partnered with the Community Arts council again to host 3 entirely free days of outsider arts on a summer weekend, widely ranging across practices including various forms of visual art, performance, media installations, music, spoken word, dance, and participatory community art. Attendance and sales both doubled from 2017’s two-day festival. 153 artists participated and over 700 artworks were exhibited.
