The Art Crawl is the highlight of HOLD FAST, where we take art into the streets of St. John’s. Experience a colourful buffet of installations, performances, pop-up galleries, hands-on demos, and activities, located in storefronts and along the Water Street Pedestrian Mall.
Fancy Artist Talks are the calm at the eye of the storm: a breath of stillness before the colourful, vibrant, chaos of Saturday’s Art Crawl. For featured artists, this evening is a time to share stories about themselves, their process, and their work. For attendees, it’s a chance to dress up in whatever makes you feel fancy, sip unique themed drinks, and gain a deeper appreciation for the art you’re about to see. Featuring: Niya Abdullahi, Daze Jefferies, Georgia Webber, Ale Monreal, and Idlefield Collective!
Celebrate the launch of the 24th HOLD FAST Festival and the 49th issue of Riddle Fence magazine! Featuring readings by Nicole Haldoupis, Katherine Alexandra Harvey, Krissi Stocks, and Christina Wells. Refreshments provided by Poyo + The Sprout, and music by Loopstitch.
