Seedlings BlakBeats

Seedlings at QPAC provides opportunities to reach artists and introduce the First Nations program. Seedlings focuses on the creative development process, enabling artists and creatives the space to explore, seed new ideas, and challenge forms of expression.


BlakBeats creates opportunities for a small collective of First Nations musicians to be in a creative development process, exploring collections, languages and giving voice to new songs.

Working with Producer Luke Peacock, the BlakBeats will continue to create and collaborate over 2019-2020. The BlakBeats for 2019 are Kaylah Tyson, Alinta McGrady, Jhindu Lawrie, Joseph Collins and Joshua Taliani.
