Coming to the Fire


Industry Series 2015


Talking Stick Festival welcomes local and visiting Indigenous and Culturally Diverse artists and companies and ALL presenters interested in programming Indigenous arts to attend Coming to the Fire: February 20-23.


The program is an open invitation to industry and communities to work in reciprocity and from a strengths-based perspective as we discuss the overarching theme of protocol through dialogue, workshops and networking sessions.


Coming to the Fire invites you to take part in a gathering dedicated to the continuing development of an Indigenous touring network.


We aim to kindle a fire and collectively, fuel it!

Tickets and Info

Community Tickets Program


Our Community Tickets Program allows us to distribute tickets to non-profit organizations, community centres, and inner city schools, so that low-income families and children may come and attend the live theatre performances and events during the festival. 


This program evolved as we saw a need to make Aboriginal arts and culture accessible to those who might otherwise not be able to experience due to financial difficulties or other hardships.   


If you or your organization need financial support and assistance in attending some of our events, please fill out the form . This program is subject to availability, so please get your application form in as soon as possible!
