preHEAT Announcement

Hello Friends!

It’s been 10 months since preHEAT 2023. What was originally slated to be Recharge 2023 quickly grew into the largest local pre-compression event we’ve seen in years (perhaps ever), and was a real success. Thank you to everyone who made this event a reality, from the production team, to theme camps, to artists – and of course – you.

In light of the last minute loss of the Dustcovery 2023 venue and given we did not have a venue or production team lined up for a spring 2024 event, your GVIAS Board of Directors has made the call to spend 2024 focusing on Burn in the Forest 2024, and on Dustcovery 2024. The Greater Vancouver Interactive Arts Society will not be producing a spring event this year.

As always, we welcome all feedback – and we especially welcome people who want to roll up their sleeves and help produce our events. Perhaps you can be a preHEAT or Recharge 2025 producer? The GVIAS Board of Directors can be contacted via the main GVIAS Website.
