Virtual Festival Program

The 2021 Artists for Conservation Festival brings several new virtual elements online, making the event more accessible and available. For those who can't make the in-person event at VanDusen Botanical Garden, join us online. AFC's virtual program features: Facebook Live artist demos, documentary films, studio visits, musical performances, a 360-degree Virtual Nature Art Walk and, of course, AFC's Virtual Exhibit. Check back regularly for time postings new scheduled activities. 

Virtually based in beautiful North Vancouver, we'd like to extend our gratitude to the City and District of North Vancouver and North Vancouver Recreation and Culture for their support during a challenging year.
