ABOUT: Vancouver’s New Forms Festival returns for its 19th edition. New Forms Festival respectfully acknowledges its location on unceded, traditional and ancestral xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), and səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) territories. New Forms is dedicated to creating interactive events that showcase independent and groundbreaking artists and musicians from across the world, alongside local and emerging talent. 2019 brings this ethos to life in the historic neighbourhood of Railtown, where the Japanese Language School & Hall and the neighbouring Pace project space will host the festival’s main showcases. Additional showcases and daytime programs will be held at venues adjacent to the Main Street corridor, including The Fox, Red Gate, Deep Blue, Open Studios, and Western Front. Curation for this year’s festival comes from a new directorial team, who bring their own experience as musicians/DJs, cultural workers, and curators from their respective scenes across the North American cultural landscape: VIA Festival co-founder / Hot Mass resident Lauren Goshinski (Pittsburgh, PA); Phoenix to Vancouver transplant and Ascetic House collective director JS Aurelius; and TUF co-founder and Discwoman affiliate Ceci Corsano-Leopizzi (Seattle, WA). NFF19 continues its commitment to working with Vancouver-based organizations and artist collectives that are pushing the envelope in their own ways. The festival will be presenting events with James Black Gallery, NuZi, Public Disco, Quiet City, Sacred Sound Club, s.M.i.L.e, among others. New Forms is made possible the support of the Canada Council Council for the Arts, Arts Presentation Canada, The Province of British Columbia, Creative BC and The City of Vancouver. We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage (Canada Music Fund) and of Canada's Private Radio Broadcasters.
