Shxixnetun [Galiano Island, BC]

In 2021 we incorporated as a society so that we could formalize some of our core values: paying and supporting artists well, bringing unique and high-quality performances to our rural and remote community, and amplifying diverse artist voices. This is the year we began livestreaming the day-long festival, as well as broadcasting an edited version. 2021 was also an important year, as we began our relationship with Rosemary Georgeson, who acts as a knowledekeeper for the festival.

We're grateful to collaborate and produce on the shared, stolen, unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of Penelakut, Lamalcha, Hwitslum and other Hul’qumi’num speaking peoples, as well as the ceded territories of Tsawwassen First Nation, on what is now known as Galiano Island, British Columbia. We recognize the complex impacts that hosting settlers and non-settlers has on the Indigenous land and peoples of this area, and we aim to be responsible and accountable for these impacts and our footprint—whether cultural, environmental or social.

We acknowledge the generous support of our partners and funders:
