Ideas that can change everything.

Ideafest is the university’s annual research festival, showcasing the ideas of faculty, students and staff from across the university.

Each year, new and emerging research is explained, debated, re-worked and brought to life in a range of highly creative panels, workshops, exhibits, presentations, performances, and tours. This unique event offers a chance to explore and celebrate UVic scholarship and attracts thousands of participants from both the on-campus and greater Victoria communities.
