The 9th annual BC Buds Spring Arts Fair returns to the Firehall May 10 – 12th!
Celebrating the Firehall’s 30th Anniversary!
The arts are a celebration of the senses and the 2013 BC BUDS Spring Arts Fair will celebrate all those senses as we toast to the end of the Firehall’s 30th season. This year we asked BC Buds participants to send us projects which celebrate and entertain the senses; Nonsense, Two sense, Commonsense, Absence, the Sixth sense, and those usual senses, sight, touch, hear, smell, and taste.
Join us for some or ALL of this year’s BC BUDS, celebrating all (or some) of the senses as we celebrate our 30th season.
BC Buds celebrates the talent and creativity of established and emerging BC artists over the course of three jam-packed days of music, theatre, dance and interdisciplinary work. Performances take place in all the nooks and hidden crannies of the Firehall, creating a spectacular environment for audiences to experience new work. Weekend afternoon also feature family and child-friendly programming including storytelling, music, and theatre.
With more than 30 different artists and groups presenting new and experimental work, the BC Buds Spring Arts Fair is Vancouver’s longest running showcase of budding artists and budding theatre, dance, music and interdisciplinary works.
BC Buds is a by-donation event.
