40 workshops. 12 performances. 10 days.
April 04-14, 2019
Close your eyes.
Imagine hundreds of people getting together for 10 days to create, craft, sing, dance, and play, led and taught by master artists and craftspeople. Imagine hundreds more gathering in the evenings to laugh, cry, listen, speak, move and be moved by art and performance.
Imagine these gatherings taking place in small community spaces, each with its own story and history. Imagine these spaces nestled among the tall cedar and fir, on the incredible and unceded territory of the Snuneymuxw people. Imagine this territory, alive with creativity, lapped on all sides by the tides of the Salish Sea.
Open your eyes.
Your dream has come true. This is the Isle of the Arts Festival.
