Keeping It Free Campaign

Let’s Keep It Free!

Here at Word Vancouver, our team feels that one of the most fantastic things about the festival is that it’s 100% free! This means that anyone and everyone can attend regardless of their financial circumstance. Hosting a festival of reading and writing that is both inclusive and accessible is really important to us, and we’re sure it matters to you too!

Word Vancouver has always been free and we want to keep it that way. That’s why this year we are introducing the Keeping It Free campaign. We invite you to help keep Word Vancouver free by donating to our Indiegogo campaign from September 8 to 28.
