About the Festival
Emerge Festival, the annual celebration of DTES Small Arts Grants recipients represents an exciting initiative, first undertaken by Vancouver Foundation and Carnegie Community Centre eight years ago. The 2018 Group Art Exhibition, Performances, Readings, and Cultural Sharing highlight the work of a few talented artists who have their creative practice rooted in the Downtown Eastside [DTES]. This annual event is an opportunity to shine a light on DTES artists, their practices, and ideas. The DTES Small Arts Grants Program is built on the unwavering belief that DTES Artists have a commitment to their craft that is sustained across their work, and that effort deserves support.
