Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival

Hosted by Community Arts Council of Vancouver

Welcome to the Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival!

Community Arts Council of Vancouver presents the annual Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival (VOAF) offering opportunities for exhibition, performance, connection and learning to visual and performing artists facing social exclusion and other barriers. 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.

Featuring 3 days of dynamic programming at the Roundouse Community Centre in addition to an online exhibition and a satellite gallery.

The Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV) was the first arts council in North America. Since its beginning in 1946, the Community Arts Council of Vancouver has been a contributor to shaping the cultural life of Vancouver. CACV has been a powerful force in creating and advocating for many of the institutions, traditions, and policies in Vancouver that we benefit from today. CACV is an independent non-profit organization, unaffiliated with any government department.
