Full Circle: First Nations Performance

https://talkingstickfest.ca

Full Circle: First Nations Performance is a non-profit society and registered charity that creates opportunities for Indigenous artists. Margo Kane (Cree/Saulteaux), an interdisciplinary artist and Indigenous arts leader, founded Full Circle in 1992. Upon establishing Full Circle, Kane's vision was to make a profound contribution to the development of Indigenous performance in Canada.

 

Traditionally, in the Indigenous world, art is not separated from the community. It is integral to a happy and healthy way of life. Full Circle believes in rooting art back into the community, where it was traditionally and where it is intended to be. Through creating opportunities for Indigenous artists to express their life experiences and engage with audiences of all ages and backgrounds, we share these values with as wide a scope as possible so that people of all races and ages have a better understanding of First Nations, Métis and Inuit culture.

20th Anniversary of the Talking Stick Festival

Season of Four Fires

Full Circle calls to the Four Directions and All Our Relations to gather around Four Fires, in each season: winter, spring, summer, and fall.

The Fire calls us into Right Relations with each other. Celebrating acts of artistic transformation, creative defiance, community-building and making space for all voices. Past, present, and future: sparks of our Sacred Fire, inspiring us to acknowledge and honor the Teachings and Knowledge of our Elders, for the well-being of all our communities.

After our time together in The Winter Lodge, we move into:

Spring Awakening

A shift and renewal

Ancestors heading Home

Time to Gather Medicines to heal one another

Celebrate with us Spring Awakening from April 29 to May 1, 2021
