Tofino Tree Festival
24-30 May 2020
The Tofino Tree Festival is a new week long event celebrating the importance and unique beauty of Trees, Forests and Nature found here on the West Coast of Vancouver Island (Clayoquot Sound). There is a deep understanding of the importance that trees and nature bring to the well-being, happiness and inspiration of the local community and the many visitors that come to Tofino each year and they play a very important role in inspiring artists in creative, written, spoken and performance arts. This new festival will seek to champion that through our diverse artistic programme and festival ethos.
Being organised by Aeriosa Dance Society (a registered non profit) this event will host a variety of workshops, presentations, concerts and performances celebrating all art forms as well as be informative and educational about the history, nature and importance of forests found here on the west coast. The programme will feature Tree Dancing workshops (offering participants the opportunity to practise Vertical Dance amungst the trees) alongside public dance performances developed and premiered by Aeriosa dancers as well as a host of nature inspired events in partnership with local community groups and organisations.
