CREATE! Eastside Arts Festival is an Eastside Arts Society production. Your support of the Eastside Arts Society is an investment in the arts and artists of Vancouver’s Eastside Arts District. It allows us to build upon a 28-year legacy of connecting community with East Vancouver’s vital population of artists, creating access to culture and fostering a love of visual art for so many over the years, and for years to come.


Our Partners

The Eastside Arts Society would not be able to develop and deliver our festivals, programs and projects without the generous support of our Partners. Believing in the transformative power of art, our Partners are deeply committed to ensuring our unique and irreplaceable community of Eastside artists thrive.
