Vines Art Festival

Vines is an arts organization and festival that is responsive to and nurturing of artists that are working toward land, water, and relational justice. We support underrepresented voices in developing their work. We bring imagination into everyday spaces by presenting work for free on “earthstages” – populated and natural public spaces in Vancouver and throughout the province.

Accessibility

Our events on August 3rd, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 13th will have ASL-English interpretation. The interpreters will be Season Hunt, Vanessa Coley-Donohue, Gillian Pettit and Lily Flanjak.  

Marcelo, the Accessibility Director, has basic ASL and Deaf culture knowledge. They would be happy to meet you at the Info Booth if you need them. Volunteers and staff are prepared to communicate through writing if needed. 

This year we will offer blind and low vision friendly events on August 11th at Grandview Park and August 12th at New Brighton Park. At Vines, blind and low vision friendly means that 90% or more of our performances are music or spoken word with no visual elements to describe. Artists will provide a self description before their performances at these events. Our staff has been trained on guiding and is ready to assist you if you need us. 

If you need assistance getting to the parks, performance area, or anything else, please contact Marcelo at marcelo@vinesartfestival.com to request it. 

Feel free to get up, move, make noise, and walk around at every Vines event. Our staff and volunteers will not ask you to be still or quiet. We are unable to control environmental stimulation due to the outdoor, public settings of the festival. We will have foam ear plugs available at the Info Booth if you need them.
