The Burnaby Festival of Learning is now Connect Fest!

Join us April 26–30, 2024 for an exploration of story.

Voices amplified.

Places acknowledged.

Traditions celebrated.

Truths uncovered.

This year’s Connect Fest brings together culture, food, and community in Burnaby to explore the power of story.

  • How has storyshown up in your life?
  • Where has it taken you (or taken you from)?
  • Whose stories do you know, and whose aren’t being told?
  • What are your traditions for telling and retelling (and retelling…)?
  • And how has story shaped your sense of what might be true (or what might not be)?

These are only a few of the questions inspiring this year’s festival.

What questions do you want to explore?
