In March, the Victoria Arts Council launched a new digital magazine as a way for our members to stay connected while practicing social distancing.
Below are links to the six issues of UNTIL… published during the 100 days of closures and other COVID-19 related realities.
We were able to work with (and support) dozens of artists over the past three months and now we are going to take a pause for the summer and enjoy being back in the world.
UNTIL… will resurface as a quarterly this September. Stay tuned for updates and future CALLS TO ARTISTS for your opportunity to contribute.

UNTIL Issue Four: Home features contributions of visual, literary, and performing art by VAC members on the topic of what ‘home’ means and how our understanding of home has been reinforced, altered, or subject to various interpretations and permutations since the COVID-19 pandemic emerged.
ISSUE THREE OF UNTIL … is now live:
UNTIL Issue Three: Resilience features contributions of visual, literary, and performing art by VAC members. Issue 3 also includes the 2nd installment of our Poetry in Public project, featuring the poem What to do when the world wants you dead, by past Youth Poet Laureate for the City of Victoria, KP Dennis.

ISSUE TWO OF UNTIL … is now live:
For the second issue of UNTIL…, we invited local artists to explore what being tender means to them, and whether they have been able to preserve that tender spot in their heart when life seems harsh in a time like this. Exceeding all expectations, we received such a wide variety of responses that challenged and broadened our preexistent understanding of the theme.
The first issue’s theme is Interconnected. How do we nurture and sustain meaningful relationships during a period of time when we cannot physically interact? In what ways can we support one another? What role does art play in defining your “new normal?” How do we sustain our individual practices when all we want to do is be among our peers?
