The Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) is excited to present the 6th annual Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival. Offering opportunities for exhibition, performance, connection and learning to visual and performing artists facing social exclusion and other barriers, the Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival is Canada’s first and only festival for Outsider Art. 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 Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival invites artists and performers from varying disciplines and experience to apply. We look forward to celebrating our artists and performers this October on the unceded territories of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
The 2022 Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival will take place from October 14-16, 2022 at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre located in downtown Vancouver. The festival will provide 3 days of free dynamic programming while featuring the work of our wonderful local outsider artists.
