About Eastside Arts Society

The Eastside Arts Society (EAS) is a visual arts organization dedicated to connecting the public with the visual arts. EAS produces the annual Culture Crawl Visual Arts, Design and Craft Festival that involves artists on Vancouver’s Eastside opening their studio to the public running November 12th-14th & 18th-21st. The event involves painters, jewellers, sculptors, furniture makers, weavers, potters, printmakers, photographers, and glassblowers; from emerging artists to those internationally established. EAS produces additional programming including Talking Art, juried exhibits, Studio 101 arts programming for inner-city children, and the Moving Art Video series.

In 2021, EAS pioneered a new festival: the CREATE! Arts Festival and a new initiative: developing an Eastside Arts District (EAD). CREATE! is a two-day community arts-making festival that ran August 21st & 22nd, 2021 and featured hands-on art making activities led by local visual artists and craft makers. The EAD will transform the arts and cultural assets in the Eastside from an informal and grassroots network of stakeholders, into a formalized organization with stable funding and secure, long-term facilities for artists and cultural venues.
