We know you have been waiting for it…..Our annual Isle of the Arts Festival (IoTA) 2024. We are thrilled to announce that proposals are now being accepted for your arts, culture and new this year culinary arts workshops and events. With pottery, paint, textiles, drawing, poetry, singing, printing and everything in between, there is always a little something on offer for everyone. If you have a skill or event you’d be interested in sharing on Gabriola Island as part of this fun and fabulous 10 days arts festival, let us know!
IoTA is a unique opportunity to gather to make, share, learn, and be adventurous. Keep in mind when you are making your proposal that this is a time for participants to try something new to embark on challenges and simply get creative.
We are excited to see what proposals you send in so we can develop a theme that will influence this year’s festival. Pull out all the stops, tell all your friends, challenge yourself. Remember the requirements are that it has to take place on Gabriola during the festival and you can accommodate a minimum of 12 people. We can go larger, 12 is the minimum unless there is something specific about your workshop that will require a smaller audience.
The 14th annual Gabriola Isle of the Arts Fest runs March 28th to April 7th, 2024. GAC pays $75 per workshop hour and covers the cost of materials, venue, admin, marketing, and more.
The deadline for proposals is December 10th, 2023, by 5pm.
