ABOUT THE SKOOKUM INDIGENOUS ARTS SERIES
Savage Society and the Massey Theatre Society joined their artistic forces in 2018 and launched the inaugural Indigenous multi-disciplinary arts program: The Skookum Indigenous Arts Series.
The program consists of original plays, dance, film and mixed arts utilizing the theatrical resources of a colonial institution to help make Indigenous talent visible, raise awareness of the talent, and foster cultural exchange and dialogue. This series is made possible by a three-year grant from the Vancouver Foundation.
