PuSh International Performing Arts Festival showcases acclaimed international, Canadian and local artists and mixes them together with an alchemy that inspires audiences, rejuvenates artists, stimulates the industry and forges productive relationships around the globe.

For the second year in a row, Full Circle’s Talking Stick Festival is partnering with PuSh to bring Indigenous arts to the community. Traditionally, in the Indigenous world, art is not separated from community, but is integral to a happy and healthy way of life.

The Talking Stick Festival, now in its 22nd year, is a premier, multi-disciplinary two-week Indigenous arts festival with over 20,000 attendees across various locations in Vancouver, BC.

We’re excited to welcome local, national, and international performing arts communities back to PuSh Festival 2023. This week-long series is an opportunity for professional artists, cultural workers, and arts enthusiasts alike to connect with one another, engage in thought-provoking discussion, and experience transformative performances together.


This year, in partnership with PuSh Festival, Talking Stick is bringing you Industry Series programming from an Indigenous lens, which aims to bring us back into community with each other after so much time apart. Programming will include workshops, artist talks, curated pitches, walks with local artists, and social events. 


Each registered delegate gets access to all Industry Series events, a discount code for 20% off all PuSh Festival programming, and free access to each night of Club PuSh.
