We are excited to announce that we are among a group of the 1st ever recipients of Canada Council For The Arts Reconciliation Grant.
We proposed a live storytelling tour that invited Indigenous communities to share land inspired stories that celebrate & investigate Indigenous worldview and teachings through digital media, audio documentary forms and live storytelling.
We have doubled down on the idea that our stories, our shared histories, can remind us and help us remember who we are as Indigenous Peoples. By using storytelling as the vehicle, we think our stories will help bring us forward in an effort toward reconciliation.
As we are a small, under resourced tour, we'd appreciate your help spreading the news. Any and all media requests can be made via our CONTACT page. We'll do our best to return your email within the hour it was sent.
We appreciate your interest in the project.
We'll record each live show & distribute the stories via our podcast (our online radio show), our app, website, and a network of Indigenous, campus and community radio stations. We'll deliver each communities' stories back to them in a digital story bundle (copies of their works), for them to add to their own communities knowledge bundles.
Through the duration of the tour we will record 48 live stories and 12 researched, hyper local, audio and sound rich, documentaries about the territories we record in. In all, we will record 60 stories from coast to coast to coast.
We hit the road through November/December 2016.
We want to thank the Canada Council For The Arts, The Circle On Philanthropy For Aboriginal Peoples & The Arts and The McConnell Foundation for supporting independent Indigenous media and we look forward to delivering this groundbreaking project both Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities alike.
