Welcome to the Vancouver Outsider Arts Festival!

Community Arts Council of Vancouver presents the 5th 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.


Online Festival – Oct 27 – Dec 1, 2021 

Did you attend VOAF this year (either in person or the online festival)? We would appreciate your feedback!
