 November Full Circle digest


#GivingTuesday is a national day dedicated to giving. It’s a day to help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or your voice. Every year, Full Circle produces a number of youth-oriented programs aimed at engaging, educating, and inspiring youth with various disciplines of the Aboriginal arts. These programs help to encourage creativity and self esteem in youth, and help to provide an opportunity to develop their skills and interest in the arts. This Giving Tuesday, we ask that you pledge a $5 donation to help offset some costs associated with our youth programs. By doing so, you’re providing Indigenous youth with an opportunity to engage in the arts and to build a sense of pride about their culture and rich history. DONATE $5 TODAY!

Full Circle would also like to take the opportunity to congratulate our Associate Producer, Deneh Cho’ Thompson (Dené), who is currently all the way in Toronto, Ontario at Native Earth Performing Arts’ annual Weesageechak Begins to Dance festival. As the 2016 Vancouver Fringe New Play Prize winner, Deneh was given the opportunity to present his play at the festival. Everyone here at Full Circle would like to wish the full cast and crew good luck as they hit the stage on Friday, November 18th.

While Deneh’s in Toronto, our Artistic Director, Margo Kane (Cree/Saulteaux), and Publicist, Suzette Amaya, are participating at the CAPACOA @CINARS conferences in Mundial, Montreal. Here they will be a part of several international networking opportunities and thought-provoking professional development discussions. We’d like to congratulate both Margo and Suzette on being just two of the more than 1500 performing arts professionals attending this conference.

We’re also thrilled to welcome Rebecca Duncan as our new Culture and Community Liaison. Rebecca Duncan is of Squamish and Musqueam descent. She has dedicated her life to making a difference and keeping Coast Salish Traditions alive by sharing cultural activities as well as teaching the Squamish Language, drumming, singing, dancing, traditional cooking, storytelling and weaving. She is very passionate about her culture and is currently helping to make another successful Moccasin Trek and Talking Stick Festival. Please join us in giving her a Full Circle welcome.

In other news, we have some new and amazing job opportunities available at Full Circle. We’re currently looking for a Website Coordinator to manage web content and design and a Marketing/Event Assistant to assist in the areas of marketing and communications, website management and event coordination. Email our Marketing Manager, Dannielle Piper, at dannielle[at] for more details.

Lastly, we’ve been working hard to make #TSF2017 a one for the record books and we’re just itching to share some updates with you. What’s the first TSF update you ask? This year’s theme will be entitled: “Kwèykw`áystawy” (pronounced kwāy kwai stwhy). Kwèykw`áystawy means “speaking with one another” and will be explored throughout the festival through dance, music, theatre and film. We invite you to reflect on this theme prior to the festival so by February, you’re more than ready to explore its significance with us. In the meantime, stay tuned because there’s a lot more coming your way!
