From 1993-2016, NWIA’s Catalyst Series presents artists from diverse nations and communities and leads to a deepened understanding and appreciation for Indigenous arts and culture in diverse communities.

In February 2016, the Catalyst Series presents Pura Fe and Rosary Spence. A complete listing of those events can be found here. 

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 has developed and has grown from our Catalyst Café events to include performances and workshops for the community in Toronto and outreach to on reserve and/or underserviced communities in arts in Ontario.
