VIFF Vancity Theatre

Full Circle's Talking Stick Festival, now in its 18th year, began as a way to showcase and celebrate Indigenous art and performance to a wider audience. From its humble beginnings, this unique and exciting event has grown into a full 2-week Festival held annually in February at locations across Vancouver.
This year's #TSF2019 theme is "hən̓əm̓stəmxw tə syəθ" (pronounced huh-num-stoh teh see-yahl), which translates to "using tradition".
We welcome you to join in the Talking Stick festivities with a special high school screening of Haida language feature, Edge of the Knife (Sgaawaay K'uuna).

Indigenous Art and the Classroom
1-3pm, Friday January 25th
Join First Nation artists Cease and Senaqwila Wyss to learn more about Indigenous art, history and culture in Vancouver and how to incorporate it into your teaching. Explore how inquiry based, object led learning outside the classroom can support your delivery of the curriculum through engaging with Indigenous and Vancouver Biennale art works.
Meet at the Museum of Vancouver for this hands on, artist led session. A resource list compiled by the artists will be provided for you to take away.
The session will include walking through Vanier Park and spending time outside looking at the Welcome Figure and Paradise Has Many Gates so please wear warm and waterproof clothing and appropriate footwear.
$20 (100% of this fee goes to the artists)
After the workshop, admission to the Museum of Vancouver and their Haida Now exhibition is also offered at a discounted rate of $11.55 to workshop participants (usually Adult: $20.50). This exhibition is on until April 2020 and the museum offers a range of related school programming which could accompany a visit. Tickets must be purchased in advance via this page to take advantage of this price.
