Kw’eykw`áystway (pronounced kwāy kwai stwhy) means “speaking with one another”. In this 4-day forum (February 16 – 20, 2017), artists, presenters and scholars are invited to discuss the ways in which we can strengthen and further the development of Indigenous arts.

Delegates are invited to attend Wax hoks en Shqalawin – Open Your Hearts Talking Stick Festival Gala at the Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre on February 16th.

February 17th marks the beginning of the Industry Series. Session topics include “Creating Work as a Guest on Territory“, “Organization to Organization Collaborations” and ” Strategies for Developing the Indigenous Arts Sector“. Delegates are also invited to attend live performances, including: MoonlodgeCelebration of Powwow Culture and Indian Acts.

In Indian Acts, the Full Circle Aboriginal Ensemble works in collaboration with local professional artists to create short new works in a limited time. Each pair, who have never worked together before, will create a performance after just 10 hours in the studio.

Moonlodge was originally written by Artistic Director of the Talking Stick Festival, Margo Kane (Cree/Saulteaux) , and is currently being produced by Urban Ink. In this piece, a girl who was removed from her home by Child Welfare government services hitchhikes across America, and discovers the authentic voice inside her that was silenced, but never lost.
