The Vancouver Art Gallery transforms into THE place for art, music and live performance in the city. Since its inception in July 2005, thousands of FUSE–goers have converged at the Gallery for this unique adult event. Live performances in the Gallery spaces, DJs and unexpected surprises make FUSE Vancouver's favourite art party—a place to see some of the best in local performance art, theatre, contemporary dance and music, plus take in the FUSE lounge.
