4e launched its inaugural Elemental Festival in October 2015. It is a recurring event that highlights our commitment to curate innovative land-based work in tandem with community-engaged activities in which artists and community members can explore themes related land and arts.
Elemental Festival is a unique multi-day, interdisciplinary, outdoor cultural experience. It is Manitoulin-based, c0-minging local artists, writers, musicians and community members with visiting creators, to create an opportunity for inquiry, inspiration, and exchange. Each year we focus the Festival around a land-based curatorial theme, and invite artists to respond to this specific, diverse ecosystem on Mnidoo Mnising | Manitoulin Island. The Festival runs in late September. The Festival attracts both local audiences that we’ve developed over the last 15 years through our land-based programming and Festival go-ers travelling from afar.
