BitF is the Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society’s (GVIAS) annual summer event that takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Squamish Valley.  This is a regional Burning Man event for BC. Our community is built on the participation of its members – from the simple exchange of food, stories, or a lending hand, to the elaborate construction of an interactive art project.

  • We support the diversity and experimentation of experience and ideas.
  • We will create a Temporary Autonomous Zone where people may safely engage in new experiences without judgement.
  • We will strengthen existing friendships and build new ones, rewarding each other in special ways.
  • We are self-sufficient and leave no trace except in our memories.

The event takes place in the Squamish Valley, a location where the forest meets the river and is surrounded by glacier peaked mountains. This year, as in the past, we will build a temporary community over an extended weekend. Together we create a village and gift each other in many ways that express our creativity and play.  Please read Participation about how you can help create this experience.
