Event Details

IAKE warmly invites anyone from the Indigenous arts community to engage in a three-hour discussion regarding the current trajectory of our three-year pilot project on Saturday, January 27th. This forum aims to provide transparency about IAKE’s programming and community engagements, offering insights into potential collaborations with Indigenous artists, educators, facilitators, cultural practitioners, knowledge keepers, and Elders. We are enthusiastic about sharing the progress made thus far and equally eager to hear your perspectives on how IAKE can better meet the needs of you and your community. Your valuable input is critical in shaping the future direction of our initiative. We look forward to a constructive and collaborative conversation.

Indigenous Arts Knowledge Exchange (IAKE) is an Indigenous-run and led organization responding to training limitations for Indigenous artists, promoting resilience through flexible, values-based learning in diverse settings across Canada. 


This event is by invitation only. If you would like to participate, please fill out this form (click).

An honorarium of 150.00 will be provided, along with a light lunch. 

If you need any support with the form or have any questions please reach out to Philip @ 


Four years ago, in 2020, the seeds for IAKE were planted during thoughtful discussions at the Industry Series, Talking Stick Festival. Growing from these conversations, the Indigenous Trainers Caucus (ITC) evolved into the registered not-for-profit Indigenous Arts Knowledge Exchange (IAKE) collective in 2023. We are currently piloting a 3 year-program, and look forward to showcasing the growth achieved and outlining our path forward. Equally important, we eagerly anticipate engaging in a critical dialogue with the Indigenous artistic community, especially those who contributed to the conversations in 2020, inviting invaluable insights into the future trajectory of IAKE.
