The festival and youth conference brings together Indigenous youth participants from across the country, as well as artists and educators to gather as a network of collaborators with shared experiences.

The festival is a chance for youth creative expression to be seen, heard, and recognized. Youth share with their peers, compare experiences and celebrate each others’ courage, talent and potential.

April 18-21, 2019: N’we Jinan Festival & Youth Conference – Winnipeg, Manitoba

In the third week of April, over three hundred youth from First Nations communities across Turtle Island gathered in Winnipeg, Manitoba for the N’we Jinan Festival & Youth conference. Festival attendees enjoyed art, music, and leadership workshops as the festival showcased the projects they created over the past year

The goal of the N’we Jinan Festival & Youth Conferences is to nurture a peer network of creative Indigenous youth from across the map. Most importantly, the festivals and conferences are opportunities to learn and celebrate the creative work of the incredible youth who have participated in our programming.
