Call for artists to show off your alternative side at Vancouver Alternative Arts and Fashion Week (VALT) during November 17-20, 2016.
Deadline: 30 Apr 2016
The Vancouver Alternative Arts and Fashion Week 2016 theme is Year V.
- Year V Gala ~ Thursday, November 17, 2016: Launch Party celebrating VALT Year V!
- Vision – Friday, November 18, 2016: To see, to be blinded, or to have a glimpse into or an idea of the future.

- Voice – Sunday, November 20, 2016: To speak, to be silenced, or to have one’s own ideas heard.
VALT is run by the Style, Entertainment, Art & Media Society – SEAMS. This not-for-profit organization focuses on developing local arts programming that assists emerging and fringe artists of every medium and media in the province of British Columbia, while fostering a community of culture appreciation.
VALT provides a professional, well appointed venue, sound system, projection setup, and months of marketing and public awareness. As a participant in VALT, all you need to bring is yourself and your work. We take all the guesswork out of showing at a festival. Our attendees are extraordinarily varied – a very different crowd than one usually finds at a fashion event. You can promote yourself and your work without having to organize or advertise anything (though we do encourage you to invite guests and publicize as time permits).
VALT provides Vancouver’s wildly explosive underground arts scene with a unique departure from typical arts affairs. This three-day event boasts over fifty jury-selected artists, musicians, performers, and designers in a celebration and promotion of unbridled creativity. VALT encompasses wearable art, music (from solo musicians to full contemporary bands to electronic artists), drawing, painting, mixed-media works, sculpture, film (documentary, art film, and narrative), performance art (from short theatrical works to interpretive dance and beyond), photography, and interactive installations.

The Integrate Art Society is currently considering submissions from artists working in all media for the 10th Annual Integrate Arts Festival, which will take place from August 26th to 28th 2016, in Victoria BC.
Deadline: 31 May 2016
Through the 10th Annual Integrate Arts Festival, the Integrate Art Society will develop a unified creative collective comprised of local artists, museums, artist-run centres, and public and commercial art galleries and bring together theatre companies, dance troupes, musical ensembles, and visual artists. This year’s festival will include an opening reception, a mass art crawl, independent artist exhibitions, indoor and outdoor performances, and daytime arts activities spanning three days.
Preference will be given to artists with unique and exciting work but without major gallery representation. The Integrate Art Society is not able to provide compensation for time, travel, or other expenses; however, artists are able to sell work on site. Participating artists will also receive an honorarium once the festival has concluded. Artists are responsible for the transportation, drop-off, and pick-up of their work.
The Integrate Arts Festival has a diverse history and numerous people have made this one of the largest art crawls in Victoria, B.C. The festival was founded by artist Marlene Jess, whom was influenced by First Thursday, an art crawl in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. At the time there was no similar art crawl happening in Victoria.
Off the Grid was re-branded in 2012 as The Integrate Arts Festival. The name emphasizes the plurality of spaces on the art crawl. It became a two day event which featured off-site projects such as Animal Productions audio and visual event at Vic Theatre and a party at David Hunwick’s Sculpture Studio. In 2014, Integrate introduced a daytime bike tour which expanded the festival’s reach beyond the downtown core including spaces in Fernwood and Oak Bay.
