Listen to Dis and Joesph Naytowhow


Be Heard - A collective of artists led by Joesph Naytowhow and Traci Foster will sing “Thank You For Hearing Me” by Sinead O'Connor, and a Cree song written by Joesph Naytowhow that fits into the melody of previous song.

School of Rock


Classic rock songs. Students take a private weekly lesson plus a weekly rehearsal to learn classic rock songs and perform on stage. The school's “house band” goes into the community to serve as entertainment and gain experience with live performances.

FadaDance Youth Company


In Transit

FadaDance Troupe includes a pre-professional training program for dancers ages 13 to 20. The FadaDance Youth Company empowers young dancers to develop as artistic creators as well as dance technicians.

In Transit is a series of contemporary dance performances that were originally performed in outdoor site-specific locations across Regina. Each dance creation was inspired by the architecture of the place and the sensation of the space. The audience was invited to "get on the bus" and tour the city with a new lens.

Kid Remington


This alt-country act has a lot of cards to play. Soulful soaring songs about promise, hope, and heartbreak. When those don't work they break out the nasty stuff.
