Vancouver Alternative Arts and Fashion Week – Call for Artists

Call for artists to show off your alternative side at Vancouver Alternative Arts and Fashion Week (VALT) during November 17-20, 2016.

Call for artists application / registration

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.
  • Volume – Saturday, November 19, 2016: To hear, to be deafened, or to play with enormity or slightness.
  • 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.
