Growing Room Literary & Arts Festival

March 11 - March 15

Growing Room is Room magazine’s annual literary and arts festival, a celebration of diverse Canadian writers and artists which takes place every March on the traditional, unceded, and ancestral territory of the Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh, and Squamish peoples (Vancouver, British Columbia). The festival started in 2017 by Room collective member Arielle Spence, was continued in 2018 and 2019 with Chelene Knight, and is now directed by current managing editor Jessica Johns. The festival is made possible through all the love, labour, and vision of the Room staff and volunteers and the community of which the organization hopes to represent and reflect.

Room is committed to deepening our learning about inclusion and accessibility, both within the systemic structures of the festival and the creative curation. Growing Room is a celebration, a protest, a reflection, a re-visioning, a gathering, a question, and a dream.
