See you in Twillingate this September: 20 – 23 for the 4th Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival: Four days of entertainment and interactive workshops where we create, share and celebrate digital arts.

Add some adventure on beautiful Twillingate Island: forage, feast, explore, enjoy music and make new friends!

Something for Everyone

“Unscripted” has something for you: whether you create with a smart phone, an iPad or high-end gear; whether you are a wannabe, a social media nut, a hobbyist or are really good at it!

After an Opening Reception, Digital Art Exhibit, Kitchen Party, From the Bog and the Bay Feast, and Saturday Soiree with Rum Ragged, we end on a high note with the annual Amazing Root Cellar Race on Sunday 23 September, followed by a barbecue – fun for the entire family!
