The National Music Centre in Calgary has unveiled the programming for its Indigenous Music Week, happening at the Studio Bell from June 19 to 22, but it will be preceded by the reveal of a new permanent exhibit on June 14 named Speak Up! which focuses on Indigenous artists making social and political impacts in Canada. Some of the artists featured in this exhibit will include Jeremy Dutcher, iskwē, Northern Cree and Tanya Tagaq.

“The National Music Centre is committed to reconciliation through music and programs that inspire dialogue,” said Adam Fox, NMC’s director of programs. “Indigenous Music Week is not only a celebration of music, but also an opportunity to initiate positive change.”

Events happening during the week include a showcase of emerging Indigenous acts on June 20 featuring Bebe Buckskin, Diyet & The Love Soldiers and Carolina East, electronic artist/producer Ziibiwan and guitarist Dan Auger from industrial-punk act DRI HIEV’s “Isitsiipotaako,” an artist-in-residence workshop and afternoon performance from the pair on June 21, an showcase event that same evening featuring Black Belt Eagle Scout, Ansley Simpson, Ziibiwan and DRI HIEV, and Thundering Nations drum and dance performances and workshops in addition to live painting from Jesse Gouchey on June 22.
