Join us at the Naa'Waya'Sum Coastal Indigenous Gardens from dawn until dusk

Our story

The Carving on the Edge Festival seeks to inspire the growth of the traditional and contemporary coastal carving arts through celebration, education and relationship-building, within the traditional territories of the ƛaʔuukʷiatḥ (Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations).

Community Projects

The festival has grown to support relationship-building in the contemporary and traditional carving communities, with programs led by master carvers, and guided by First Nations values, blending tradition and history with contemporary relevance.
