Indian Summer Festival is produced by Indian Summer Arts Society, a not-for-profit charitable arts organization based in Vancouver, Canada. This year's festival theme is 'Tales of War and Peace.' The line-up includes an outstanding array of award-winning artists who have the courage to say what they think, to hold up a mirror to ugly truths, but also to transcend, offer hope and celebrate creation when the world looks dispiriting.

An evening with Kamila Shamsie, Raghu Karnad & Joe Sacco.
Speaking of art born of war, the novelist Kamila Shamsie writes “In the ugly moments of history – times of conflict, war, oppression or censorship – two questions are provoked over and over: what is good art in such times? And what good is art in response to such times?”
Join this group of eminent thinkers – novelists, graphic artists and journalists as they explore these questions, taking us from historical sites of war (World War II, Hiroshima) to present day sites of conflict (Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan).
ASL is available for this event! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request ASL services before June 9th.
