We acknowledge that the Artists for Conservation Festival takes place on the traditional unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
The AFC Festival features an eclectic range of musical and cultural performances that beautifully compliments the nature theme including First Nations songs, spoken words and performances, acoustic guitar, viola, drumming, Japanese Shakuhachi flute and others. Unless otherwise indicated, performances will be located at the VanDusen Botanical Gardens.
