IGNITE! Youth Festival

IGNITE! Youth Festival

IgniteEvery year, for one week in May, The Cultch is taken over and transformed by young people. Hundreds of youth are involved in what has grown to be Vancouver’s largest youth-driven arts festival. The festival includes showcases in music, dance, and spoken word, the world premiere of three one-act plays, a visual arts exhibit, variety shows featuring improv, drag, circus arts, and much more. All of this is created by local artists between the ages of 13-24. This year The Cultch moves into its brand new home at the newly renovated York Theatre and IGNITE! moves in right along with it! Stay tuned for more details.

Literally every aspect of the festival is youth-driven, produced by the Cultch’s Youth Panel. From media relations and promotion, to stage managing and running the lighting and sound boards, there are countless ways to become involved, whether on stage or behind the scenes. This year’s festival is taking place from May 17-21, 2016. Contact igniteyouthfest@gmail.com or visit www.igniteyouthfest.com  to learn more.

See you at The Cultch!
