Vancouver’s New Forms Festival (NFF19) is excited to announce its 19th edition, with events running September 25-29, 2019 at established and non-traditional venues throughout Vancouver, BC, Canada.
The 19th Edition of New Forms Festival takes on a change in leadership marked by the arrival of a new directorial team working with the organization’s board of directors. This new team consists of VIA Festival co-founder and Hot Mass resident Lauren Goshinski from Pittsburgh, PA; Phoenix to Vancouver transplant and Ascetic House collective director JS Aurelius; and TUF co-founder and Discwoman affiliate Ceci Corsano-Leopizzi based in Seattle, WA. Uniquely positioned across the North American landscape, each of these directors has been a critical force in shaping their regional scenes, linking international networks, and fueling larger creative movements through their professions as musicians/DJs, cultural workers, and curators — spanning music, performance, digital art, design, and film. The common ground for all the directors is a shared commitment to creating and supporting platforms for traditionally underrepresented artists and artforms who challenge dominant local and global cultural narratives.
