Visual Arts of South Asia (V.A.S.A.) – Arts Festival, aims to bring the visual arts of South Asia as seen through the eyes of Canadians from all ethnic backgrounds. V.A.S.A. – Arts Festival and exhibition aims at introducing the unique flavour of South Asian art with an underlying objective of bringing together Canadian artists from different cultures. The event showcases South Asian culture as it evolves in this country and integrates with Canadian values

The event brings, not just the adult population, but also attracts and encourages youth participation who are the future of this country. It aims to focus as much on the uniqueness of South Asian arts, culture and heritage, as on the sameness that envelopes all cultures throughout the world – such as rhythm, festivities and celebration. The festival provides a free platform to local, home-grown talent as well as artists from all across Canada. These artists will create a trail of art that will capture the essence of South Asia while presenting the nuances of Canada and multiculturalism.

V.A.S.A.Arts Festival, will open on July 15, 2018 with a launch event at Beaux Arts Brampton, July 19, 2018, to introduce the artists and their artwork along with an opportunity to network with the community. The exhibition will be free and open for public until July 28, 2018.
