This year’s Weesageechak Festival will take place November 12th –22nd, 2014 in our Aki Studio Theatre. Each selected piece receives dramaturgical/directorial support, rehearsal time and a public showing.  To be eligible, creators must be available to attend the festival.

Submissions will be curated by a selection committee.  The Weesageechak Festival is open to all Indigenous artists.  We are particularly, but not exclusively, interested in new work that examines contemporary Native challenges and experiences.
