Łutselk’e Dene, Plains Cree, Two-Spirit, Nonbinary poet, Tawahum Bige resides on unceded Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish territory. Since 2017, Tawahum has performed at over 40 different venues from the west coast to Ontario. In Aries-sun fashion, Tawahum completed the first-ever Indigenous Spoken Word residency at the Banff Centre in 2018 while completing their BA in Creative Writing from KPU in 2019. Featured in over 10 lit-journals including Prairie Fire, Contemporary Verse 2, Grain Magazine and EVENT Magazine, Art-poet Tawahum’s Scorpio-moon-ass poetry and music makes vulnerable the process of growing, resisting and being a hopeless sadboy on occupied Turtle Island. They’ve performed for festivals with their poetry at Talking Stick, Koksilah, Magnetic North, Verses Festival of Spoken Word, and Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. For Tawahum, beyond the festival, stage and page is the front-line, where their main inspiration comes from, and where they’ve hit the megaphone and mic to inspire their fellow warriors, whether at a rally, fundraiser, sacred fire or the siege outside the gates of Kinder Morgan in Burnaby.
VirtualFeast.ca is a collaborative project of BC Indigenous arts presenters including 2 Rivers Remix Society, Savage Production Society, Full Circle: First Nations’ Performance, and the Vine Arts Festival
Full Circle: First Nations Performance’s music programming is supported by funding from Creative BC, FACTOR, and SoundOn.
Full CircleFull Circle: First Nations Performance is a non-profit society and registered charity that creates opportunities for Indigenous artists. Margo Kane (Cree/Saulteaux), an interdisciplinary artist and Indigenous arts leader, founded Full Circle in 1992. Upon establishing Full Circle, Kane's vision was to make a profound contribution to the development of Indigenous performance in Canada. In 2018 Full Circle: First Nations Performance launched the Múyuntstut ta Slúlum Live Series. The Múyuntstut ta Slúlum Live Series aims to offer learning and career-enhancing opportunities to Indigenous musical artists through the sharing of ideas and knowledge and through the exploration of contemporary Indigenous music. Múyuntsut ta Slúlum comes from the Squamish Nation and means ‘to submerge/sink/immerse yourself in songs/music’. It is an open invitation to music industry professionals, established, emerging and aspiring, to work in reciprocity and from a strengths-based perspective to support and ensure the ongoing development of Indigenous music. This series has been supported by funding from Creative BC, FACTOR and SOCAN.firstname.lastname@example.org #416-268 Keefer Street Vancouver, BC V6A 1X5
