ABOUT

The Indigenous Sounds series enables securing showcase slots for talents emerging from Indigenous communities, highlighting the art being created across Canada. It is built around showcases and professional development activities, mentoring sessions and targeted networking activities. This unique project among showcase events, initiated by Mundial Montréal has created a bridge to new audiences and new touring opportunities into the mainstream circuits.

“I appreciated learning more about the current trends and conversations Canadian presenters are having especially about ways to present and engage the Indigenous community.”
Jordana Phokompe, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, New York, United States
