The Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games (VANOC) and the Four Host First Nations (Lil’wat, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations) are working together to host an outstanding 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games on the traditional and shared traditional territories of the Four Host First Nations, with an unprecedented level of Aboriginal (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) participation, a first for the Olympic Games!

There are many opportunities for Aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit and Metis) artists in artistic disciplines to participate in the 2010 Olympic and Paralymic Winter Games, through the Cultural Olympiad, Torch Relay and Ceremonies and Four Host First Nations programs. To help accomplish this, an inventory of Aboriginal Artists is being developed in the following disciplines:

* Performing Arts (music, theatre, dance, comedy)
* Literary Arts
* Storytelling
* New Media and Digital Arts
* Street Arts
* Culinary Arts

We recognize your talents as an accomplished artist, and we would like to encourage you to be part of this important Aboriginal Artists Inventory for the 2010 Olympics and Paralympic Winter Games. If you are interested in being part of this first ever inventory for any Olympic games, please complete and submit the Artists Registration Form along with one copy of your CD, DVD, biography, discography, press reviews to:
