We gather to celebrate our music, art, culture, creativity and our people.
In 2019 crowds gathered on a sunny warm August day at Gorge Park in the traditional territories of the Lək̓ʷəŋən people for Indigifest, a free one-day festival with two live music stages. The festival showcased people from FPCC arts programs – performers, production, technical personnel and festival management.
More than 16 acts performed. People filled the fields to listen, dance and by the time the last light faded from the sky, everyone was on their feet. While the music drew the crowd, Indigest also had more to offer.
When the bands took a break there were workshops to attend. A breaking and hip-hop workshop drew all ages. The marketplace featured crafts from talented artists and a children’s area offered projects and traditional games.
Indigifest was a special celebration, an opportunity for us to gather, share and celebrate.
FPCC hopes to host the event every two years.
