about Indigenous Arts

The Banff Centre's Indigenous Arts programs enhance opportunities for Indigenous artists – writers, musicians, dancers and choreographers, visual and new media artists, and others – to research, conceive, and produce work with cultural integrity and artistic merit. Programming includes performances, concerts, residencies, presentations, workshops, publications, and exhibitions. Our goal is to contribute to the development of strong and vibrant Indigenous arts communities in Canada and around the world.
