The fourth Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival (VOAF) will be held August 7-9, 2020. This 3-day free festival offers exhibition, sales, performance, learning and connection opportunities to Vancouver-based visual and performing artists facing exclusion. In 2019 we had over 1,000 people attend and sold over $ 10,000 worth of art with 100% of sales going to the artists!
VOAF is produced and organized by Community Arts Council of Vancouver in partnership with Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre and other local organizations.
VOAF’s organizing committee meets roughly monthly beginning in November to help plan and carry out the festival in collaboration with CACV staff:
- Review feedback and lessons from 2019
- Promoting the Artist Call for visual and performing artists to apply
- Supporting artists in the application process
- Assisting with artist selections
- Promoting call for workshop and artist talk proposals
- Plan festival events and celebrations
- Design and carry out evaluation process
Other roles may arise depending on skills and experience of volunteers.
Anyone who wants to be a part of a vibrant, inclusive, socially-engaged vision of Vancouver is invited to join this joyful work!
Experience with outsider arts or community arts is helpful but not required.
Experience with events or festivals is a plus.
