BCBHAS has worked with Vancouver Winter Arts Festival in the past, providing historical insight in bringing stories of Black icons to light. We are excited that this year VMF will debut in Victoria, bringing families together during the FAMILY DAY LONG WEEKEND – Friday, Feb 16th to Monday, Feb 19th.
2024 THEME: LIGHT AND LANGUAGE
“The Winter Arts Festival 2024 is an interactive festival transforming downtown Victoria and Vancouver into an open-air gallery and celebration of art, lights, and entertainment. Free to attend except for 19+ events, everyone is invited downtown to enjoy new works of temporary public art popping up in unexpected places.
The Winter Arts Festival spotlights the fusion of light, language and technology in captivating light-based public art. In the darkest season, light serves as a vital form of communication, conveying warnings and radiating warmth while creating spaces for reflection and storytelling.” https://winterartsfest.com/
