The 14th Annual Talking Stick Festival, presented by Full Circle First Nations Performance, will be taking place in various venues throughout Vancouver from February 17 – March 1. All areas of the performing arts are represented from theatre, dance, drumming and music to spoken word and multimedia performance. These artistic disciplines celebrate Aboriginal culture and showcase the new evolving contemporary work of today’s artists.
The Talking Stick Festival was originally created in 2001 as a one night cabaret performance and has grown and evolved into a two week celebration serving to preserve and promote the language, culture and art forms of the First Nations people by developing and presenting Aboriginal traditions of music, dance, and storytelling in a contemporary and entertaining way.
