  • Indigenous Arts Rising

    Indigenous Arts Rising

    With a season focused on themes of cultural reclamation, Indigenous women’s resilience and theatre as an artistic resurgence, we proudly claim space at the NAC with contemporary, traditional and culturally-specific Indigenous activities and events.

  • How we got here

    How we got here

    Indigenous Theatre at the National Arts Centre is the first National Indigenous theatre department in the world! Our art is alive—it is shape-shifting and developing as we continue to learn, create, and share with one another.

  • A $15 ticket welcoming the Indigenous community

    We are committed to opening our doors and creating a place where the Indigenous community feels a sense of belonging and a connection to us and our work.

  • One foot in the community

    I am so honoured to be able to share with you some of the very best Indigenous artists from across Turtle Island and around the world...

  • One foot on the stage

    C’est ici que, 50 ans après la présentation de l’historique The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, nous prenons notre place sur la scène nationale en inaugurant le premier département national de théâtre autochtone au monde.
