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 featured 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, Dj, graffiti artist, cedar weaving and more provided something for all ages. The marketplace featured hand-made products from talented artists and a children’s area offered art projects and traditional games.
Indigifest was a special celebration, an opportunity for us to gather, share and celebrate. Visit the website link below for a full list of performers and workshop hots.
FPCC hopes to host the event every two years.
