Festival of art and social change.
50 artists. 5 stages. Rain or shine.
Admission by donation. (Suggested: $10 for modest incomes and students; $15 for part-time workers; $20 for full-time workers. If you can afford to give more than $10 you are helping pay the admission fee for someone who can't.)
Under the Volcano started out as a means to get diverse youth together, and today we bring diverse peoples together. First Nations and settlers alike, we come here to share our stories outside of the mainstream media vortex. The Festival is a cultural tool to educate and inspire real alternatives to the overwhelming oppressive forces of patriarchy, racism, capitalism and control by the haves over the have-nots in these post-9/11 days of the US empire. We need Under The Volcano more than ever.
