How to Participate in this year's Integrate Art Festival: August 23-24, 2013

The Integrate Arts Festival (formerly called Off the Grid Art Crawl) will take place August 23rd & 24th, 2013 and will offer an opening reception, mass art crawl, indoor and outdoor performances, daytime arts activities, and will end with a final closing celebration. 2013 will mark the 7th Annual Integrate Arts Festival in Victoria, BC, and this is a fantastic way to connect, celebrate, and share the vibrant arts community that Victoria has to offer!

We are seeking artists of all levels and mediums to participate in this year's festival. Visual artists, performance artists, theatre performers, musicians, dancers, singers, graffiti artists, caricaturists, photographers, videographers… and anyone else with an exciting art idea is encouraged to apply!

Accepted artists will be volunteer - however we will work together to provide production support, securing venues, and assisting with city permits and other permissions. We are committed to providing a platform for artists, performers, curators, galleries, artist-run centres, and arts organizations to come together. The artist's work will be displayed in our continually growing and high-traffic event. The Integrate Arts Festival will be thoroughly marketed and promoted in a variety of ways leading up to the event.
