About the event
Founded in 2012, SkirtsAfire Festival is Edmonton’s only theatre and multidisciplinary arts festival featuring women. In conjunction with International Women’s Day, our 10 day festival runs each March at various venues in the heart of Old Strathcona, Downtown, and Alberta Avenue. We present powerful and insightful stories to a diverse audience that is hungry to be moved by passionate performances and exhibitions. Programming reflects the true diversity of the thriving arts community in Alberta and Canada, and is adaptive in its approach in order to remain responsive to the needs of artists and audiences.
SkirtsAfire Festival values diversity in the women we represent and therefore welcomes women artists of all diverse backgrounds including trans women, self-identifying women, the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, all ethnicities and all abilities.
