TOQUE: Western Front Annual Fundraiser & Craft Sale | Dec 6 & 7

Western Front’s annual fundraiser and craft sale, TOQUE, returns December 6 and 7 for the Western Front’s 40th Anniversary with an exciting showcase of local artists, designers and artisans.

TOQUE offers a range of goods from publications, textiles and ceramics to jewellery and tasty treats, ranging in price from $5 to $500. Limited-edition tea towels by Vancouver-based artist Arvo Leo will be unveiled and available for sale at the event, plus there are fantastic raffle prizes including a bike from Whoa! Nellie Bikes.

The important fundraiser is a longstanding Western Front tradition and supports Western Front’s year-round art and music programming.

Established in 1973, Western Front is one of Canada’s leading centres for contemporary art and new music. We produce and present visual art exhibitions, new music concerts and workshops, media-art residencies, performance art and other artist-driven initiatives. Through this diverse programming, Western Front continues to be a crucial platform for interdisciplinary, experimental art practices in Canada and internationally.
