The Drum is Calling Festival: Volunteer Registration

The City of Vancouver, in partnership with our three Host Nations, the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, is hosting Canada 150+. This year-long focus on Indigenous arts and culture includes large-scale Signature Events this summer including the Drum is Calling Festival.
The Drum is Calling is a nine-day festival of Indigenous and diverse arts and culture. Highlighting the festival will be stellar performances from iconic artists such as singer-songwriters Buffy Sainte-Marie and Chantal Kreviazuk and PowWowStep creator DJ Shub,  to emerging stars like Inuktitut alt-country group the Jerry Cans, Juno-winning storytelling singer-songwriter William Prince and rising R&B performer George Leach. Additional highlights will include hands-on workshops and live programming inside the Indigenous housing forms built by the Kanata Festival. The inaugural Indigenous Fashion week will feature established and emerging artists of Indigenous fashion design and modeling.
The City of Vancouver is looking for volunteers to fill various roles during the nine-day festival.
