Indian Summer Festival (ISF) presents multi-arts experiences that center the exciting work of culturally diverse artists, curated through a South Asian lens. We present acclaimed and emerging international and local artists, connecting Vancouver to itself and the world. Programming across literature, music, visual arts and the performing arts, we connect rich and complex pasts with the emerging future. We strive to be loving and fierce, with an audacious curatorial punch that dismantles walls, plays with ideas and provokes necessary dialogue and debate. In doing this, we believe in the transformative power of the arts, and their ability to offer society’s most renewable resource: hope.
ISF is produced by Indian Summer Arts Society, a provincial non-profit society founded in 2011, and a federally registered charitable organization, based in Vancouver Canada.
