Taanishi, IPAA members and allies:

I am humbled to share that Toronto Arts Foundation has selected Indigenous identified Venezuelan-Canadian choreographer Victoria Mata, Benjamin Kamino and myself as finalists for the 2016 Emerging Artist Award.

It is incredible to be acknowledged in this way. I look forward to meeting the Mayor of Toronto at the Awards Lunch on May 26th and then opening the play Body Politic by Nick Green at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre that same night. 

Awards! Luca Caruso-Moro was selected by TIFF Next Wave Jump Cuts for best documentary, Children of God by Corey Payette is a finalist for the Kevin Spacey Foundation Artists of Choice 2016 and Penny Couchie won the KM Hunter award for dance.  Congratulations, all!

Below are the events our members have shared with us.

In solidarity,
Cole Alvis, Executive Director
