Elevate Winter Bazaar invites bizarre and strange applicants

Crafters, artists and independent creators are invited to apply to be part of the Elevate Winter Bazaar.

Crafters, artists and independent creators of all things curiously bizarre and whimsically strange are invited to apply to be part of the Elevate Winter Bazaar.

The Elevate consortium will bring you the craft fair with a twist. On Dec. 8, organizers will dim the lights in the Courtenay Legion, setting the mood for edgy, enticing or unusual offerings in a bizarre-meets-bazaar environment.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., complete with a delicious and quirky lunch canteen, live music, and hands-on art and craft making, all in the spirit of Elevate the Arts!

The Elevate Winter Bazaar is the sister fair to the Underground Craft Fair held during Elevate the Arts.

The inaugural Elevate the Arts Festival was held in downtown Courtenay in May 2012 and featured over 20 venues and a huge variety of creative disciplines all dedicated to elevating the arts and examining our relationship with our downtown, our community and each other.

Organizers are getting rolling on the June 4 to 8, 2013 event with many exciting ideas about rethinking the nooks, crannies, streets and alleys of downtown Courtenay.

From jewelry, body art, unique clothing and toys to sculpture, cards, notions and potions, if you’re a vendor or exhibitor with something strange or unique to offer, then join the bazaar! Vendor space ranges from $25 to $40. Apply online at www.elevatethearts.com/bazaar.

Never participated in a craft fair? No problem!

Established artists, undiscovered talents and youth are encouraged to apply. All entries must be received on or before Nov. 9. Applications will be reviewed to be sure they fit with the Elevate mandate and Winter Bazaar vibe.

For details, see the application or e-mail atimeforart@gmail.com.
