From 1993-2016, NWIA’s Catalyst Series presented artists from diverse nations and communities

In 2017 the Catalyst Series was re-branded as the Kwe Performance Series .

Past guest artists have included Skookum Sound System, Lido Pimienta, Leanne Simpson, Tara Williamson, Moe Clark, Muriel Miguel, Métis Fiddler Quartet, Nadjiwan, and others. The Catalyst Series developed and grew from our Catalyst Café events to include performances and workshops for the community in Toronto and outreach to on reserve and/or under-serviced communities in Ontario.
