Talking Stick Festival Logo

January 23-28, 2024 | Registration is now open.

The PuSh Industry Series brings together 200+ visionary arts workers to imagine possible futures through exchange that invites generative friction, collective reflection, and creative response.

The Series will include roundtable discussions, artist talks, studio visits, curated pitches, social events, and artist walks, alongside off-programming including HOLD ON LET GO (formerly PushOFF), Left of PuSh, and the Dance West Network.

For a third year, PuSh partners with Talking Stick Festival to host Indigenous delegates from Turtle Island and beyond for ceremony, feast, and weaving deeper connections within our communities.

Each year, the Series offers professional and sector development, and networking opportunities with local, national, and international arts professionals. The Industry Series impacts the development of Canadian performing arts practice and dissemination, and has been instrumental in supporting pan-Canadian and international tours. Last year’s Industry Series welcomed over 200 delegates, including presenters from the UK, USA, China, Australia, Norway, Chile, Germany, Poland, Belgium, Finland, Samoa, Fiji, and more. We anticipate a similar level of international participation this year from local, national and international cultural workers engaging in professional development and networking opportunities.

The 2024 PuSh Industry Pass is $75 CAD and provides delegates with access to all PuSh Industry Events, 20% off Festival shows, and both Club PuSh nights.
