Callouts for the VOAF

Tuesday, March 15, 2022 9:42 PM | Maggie Tate (Administrator)

Calling all BC artists and performers who move to the beat of a different drum! Applications will soon be open on April 1st for British Columbia visual artists and performers for the Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival - the VOAF.

This Festival is a welcoming environment for artists who feel that they are outsiders and facing social exclusion, or who have visible or non-visible barriers that prevent them from making a career in the mainstream arts industry in Vancouver and across BC. Offering a chance to connect, to learn, to display and perform, the VOAF is presented by the Community Arts Council of Vancouver.

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 Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival 2022 dates not been announced yet, but we are anticipating it to be this Fall. In the meantime, the VOAF have a short series of workshop videos on YouTube that are great for helping get Outsider Artists Online and to prepare for the Festival itself! You can visit
