Unscripted Festival 15 to 18 September 2022
Creativity comes naturally in a place like Twillingate. Where inspiration can be found around every corner, trail, cove, bay, wave and harbour. With light and skies so spectacular they simply have to be captured and shared. With stories so compelling and rich that they have to be told. With songs and lyrics so enchanting, they have to be sung. With a history of merchants and fishermen with cod as its currency Twillingate has secrets waiting be discovered.
Since 2015 the Unscripted Twillingate Digital Arts Festival has become a mainstay on the Newfoundland and Labrador annual festival calendar.
In 2020 the pandemic gave the Festival an opportunity to present the festival in a hybrid format with virtual workshops and some live events that were also live-streamed. In 2021 the Festival followed a hybrid format with some in-person events and some virtual.
Stay tuned for more information about what our 2022 Unscripted Digital Arts Festival will look like!
