Far Afield is a multifaceted artist-led initiative committed to experimental research, publications, exhibitions, community engagement, and emergent practices. Through temporary and long-term projects, Far Afield aims to support regionally-connected artistic and curatorial practices.
Far Afield works at a distance from conventional metropolitan supports for contemporary art presentations, looking towards locally-designed frameworks instead. As a collaborative platform for artists and a resource for multiple publics, the project advocates for the support of de-centered fields of interest and methods of working, particularly projects considered to be out of the way, out of the ordinary, or otherwise unexpected.
Far Afield has been generously supported by the British Columbia Arts Council and the Canada Council for the Arts.
