Integrate Arts Festival celebrates Victoria’s cultural scene

Former the Off the Grid Art Crawl takes place Aug. 3 and 4

Victoria’s sixth annual Integrate Arts Festival (formerly the Off the Grid Art Crawl) will take place Aug. 3 and 4 with an official art crawl, outdoor visual projections and various other art and music events throughout the festival.

Victoria’s art galleries, artist-run centres and arts organizations invite the public to explore art exhibitions and meet local artists, curators, musicians and volunteers that make Victoria’s cultural scene the diverse and vibrant entity that it is.

The Integrate Art map will guide the public to a variety of exhibitions and events at participating galleries, publicly accessible studios, and various sites throughout the city, including large-scale outdoor visual projections as part of the City of Victoria 150 celebrations.

As an official en-masse open house event, participating sites will offer free evening viewings on Aug. 3 and an audio and visual event at Vic Theatre will be presented by Animal Productions from 8 to 11:30 p.m.

On Aug. 4, participating galleries will host interactive events and workshops throughout the day. Animal Productions will host a Multimedia Showcase at G++ Gallery, and Integrate Arts Society will present a festival finale party featuring live music and DJs at The Sculpture Studio from 8 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.

Participants are encouraged to pick up a copy of the printed map at participating galleries, or go to their mobile website (integratearts.ca) on your Smart Phone to download the map. The map will guide art enthusiasts through the city streets to discover the vast array of art galleries, organizations and artist-run centres during the festival and year-round.
