SkirtsAfire Festival is reaching out to set up meetings with local Indigenous women and Two-Spirit artists who are interested in featuring their work at our festival. 

Our Indigenous programming has become a highlight of our festival. The initiative is completely Indigenous led, SkirtsAfire simply facilitates and produces. There are some grant writing responsibilities that fall upon the guest artist(s), but SkirtsAfire mentors and provides as much support as needed for this.

For the past 2 years, the programming has featured two 45-60 minute performances that melded music, theatre, visual art, and storytelling, with student and public performances and a workshop element for our Indigenous youth audience. However, we are open to all ideas! 

If you are interested, please fill out the form below. Feel free to include attachments of your previous work and/or a resume. Questions? Please send an email to Amanda Goldberg at and we’d be happy to answer any them. We look forward to meeting you!
