In its 12th year, The Talking Stick Festival is a citywide celebration of Aboriginal performance and art featuring a mix of theatre, Aboriginal Cabaret, live music, dance, spoken word, traditional Powwow, workshops, artist talks and more. With over 150 artists from across Canada, The Talking Stick Festival is an ensemble of the brightest emerging artists and established Aboriginal acts.

In 2013, Full Circle: First Nations Performance, producers of the Talking Stick Festival, has expanded beyond the festival and has diversified Aboriginal arts programming by offering a number of storytelling sessions plus numerous workshops & master classes to community centres and schools in the Metro Vancouver area as a means to develop and educate young Aboriginal students and artists.

Vancity is a proud supporter of the Talking Stick Festival “Workshops in Schools Series” which brings the Aboriginal cultural experience, traditions and teachings directly into the classroom. Vancity is also a sponsor of the Talking Stick Festival “Professional Development Series” which offers emerging artists the necessary skills, knowledge, training and advice to become a successful independent artist.
