World Stage Design 2022 will take place in Calgary, Canada during August 6-16, 2022. Located near Canmore, Alberta, between University of Calgary and Banff National Park, is a mountain known as the Three Sisters. The mountain is known for its three peaks and is a significant landmark to the area. This mountain has served as an inspiration for WSD team, in which WSD is a multi-summit event, like the Three Sisters. The theme and vision of the Three Sisters of WSD 2022 are Big Sister- Indigenous Ways of Knowing, Middle Sister- Ecoscenography and Little Sister- Multiple Realities. More information, please visit WSD 2022 Website.
The Big Sister in the theme of the Three Sisters for Scenofest is Indigenous Ways of Knowing. We are programming many activities that will bring the local Indigenous cultures into the festival of global theatre making that is Scenofest. We welcome you to join us in learning more about Indigenous Ways of Knowing with Hunter Cardinal, Director of Story at Naheyawin. Cardinal presented at our event on August 5th and he will be presenting a new discussion at World Congress. We will be delighted to have your presence!
