“Our vision is for an inclusive, diverse, and culturally-rich society.”
Where Worlds Meet
Indian Summer produces some of Vancouver’s most distinctive arts + culture events. We present acclaimed international and local artists, connecting Vancouver to itself and the world. We offer our audiences multi-arts experiences of exceptional caliber, curating through a South Asian lens and centering the exciting work of culturally diverse artists. Programming across literature, music, visual arts and the performing arts, we connect rich and complex pasts with the emerging future.
We strive to be loving and fierce, with an audacious curatorial punch that dismantles walls, plays with ideas and provokes necessary dialogue and debate. In doing this, we believe in the transformative power of the arts, and their ability to offer society’s most renewable resource: hope.
Indian Summer Arts Society (ISAS) is a Vancouver-based not-for-profit secular arts organization and registered charity.
