Wild Spaces brought to life by edgy artists at Vancouver Alternative Arts & Fashion Week – #VALT2015!
Vancouver Alternative Arts & Fashion Week – #VALT2015 returns for its fourth year in a row, showcasing three consecutive, mind-blowing evenings of designers, visual artists, performers and musical acts at the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Vancouver on November 20-22, 2015!
#VALT2015 features Terrestria on Friday, November 20, featuring lush forests, arid deserts, tropical flora, vast tundras, epic mountains, spacious valleys, tectonic plates and volcanic eruptions. Terrestria is slow to change, but complex and deeply interconnected. It is bound by gravity but has created creatures that are not. It is harsh one moment, loving the next, but in the end, Terrestria is home. Celestia follows on Saturday, November 21, with clear blue skies, star sprinkled nights, storms, thunder, lighting, wind, rain, the vacuum of space, nebulae, suns and black holes. Celestia is the unknown heights to which we ever aspire. It is a perpetual mystery, but without Celestia, we would have no dreams for more. The weekend concludes with Aquatica on Sunday, November 22, boasting cerulean waters, glass-still lakes, ponds full of lotus flowers, oceans as far as the eye can see, violent tsunamis and impossibly dark depths. It is the magical and the terrifying. Aquatica is the unfathomable adventure that lurks just a little too close for comfort.
“VALT differs from more traditional fashion weeks in several ways, with the most obvious being that fashion is not the entire focus of the event,” explains Creative Director, Kat Ferneyhough. “We host a visual art exhibition, screen short films, as well as present live musical acts and performance art pieces. VALT is about living in an Alternative Fashion, and it is so much more than simply showing unique clothes.”
Tickets range from $25/evening, $60/weekend pass and $150/VIP weekend pass, and tickets are ONLY available in advance this year! More information about #VALT2015 can be found at www.VALT.ca
