About Emerge Festival
Emerge Festival, the new name for the annual celebration of DTES Small Arts Grants recipients represents an exciting initiative, first undertaken by Vancouver Foundation and Carnegie Community Centre nine years ago. The 2019 Group Art Exhibition, Performances, Readings, and Cultural Sharing highlight the work of a few talented artists who have their creative practice rooted in the Downtown Eastside [DTES]. This annual event is an opportunity to shine a light on DTES artists, their practices, and ideas.
In 2018-19, Vancouver Foundation funded 99 artists and projects in the DTES for a total of $93,000.
