AUGUST 6-16, 2020

Vines is a community/professional 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.

Vines Art Festival is committed to capturing the imaginations of new audiences and inserting creativity into Vancouver’s everyday public spaces.

The festival is a free public event that creates platforms for local artists and performers to create with and on the land, steering their creative impulses toward work that focuses on the environment – whether a deep love of nature, sustainability, or climate justice.

We stage work in pedestrian, open-air settings so audiences will happen upon public art, finding delight in the unexpected beauty and power of the stunning Coast Salish Territory. We present a wide range of disciplines and cultures, reinforcing the reality that each art form and each community has a deep-rooted tie to the earth and a story to go along with it. Vines shares thought-provoking art that tackles environmental justice with various approaches that are inclusive of diverse ages, genders, abilities and cultures; granting each individual the possibility to access, engage, and participate in creation or performance.
