Formerly called the Off the Grid Arts Festival, the Integrate Arts Festival started out in 2006 as a way to celebrate and recognize alternative art, small and independent galleries, and art centres owned and managed by the artists themselves. Its main highlight is an “en masse art crawl”, which is defined as a “movement in large groups from gallery space to gallery space. When it began, there were only 10 art crawl venues, but over the years, the event has expanded to over 20 locations. The Integrate Arts Festival is now on its 10th year, and this is one event no art enthusiast should miss!
