Full Circle First Nations Performance is accepting submissions from artists for the 2017 Talking Stick Festival. Fill out the information below.

We welcome work of both established and emerging artists from all areas of the performing arts - theatre, dance, drumming, spoken word, music and multi-media in traditional or contemporary form - or maybe even a fusion of both!

The Talking Stick Festival also offers opportunities for artists whose work is in development and who are seeking artistic support/guidance. Artists who are interested in having their work presented in the “Development Series” are encouraged to submit their application with:
  • A cover letter - outlining your interests and telling us a little about yourself and details of your project/application
  • 3 letters of reference.
  • A description of your Project in development (Maximum of 20 minutes performance)
All artists (professional and emerging) can apply in two ways: 1) Fill out the online application form found at the bottom of the page and upload your bio and photos. 2) Mail in your application

Mail in your application To mail your application, include the following in your artist package submission:
  • Cover letter - outline your interests and tell us a little bit about yourself
  • An updated bio on your performances
  • A sample of your work if you have it (CD – if you are singer / DVD if you are a performer / link to your website or YouTube / copy of your script)
  • Any other support materials you feel would help your application
  • A self-addressed stamped envelope if you wish to have your support material returned to you. Please ensure there is enough postage on your envelope.
