Cultural Survival is pleased to announce its fifth call for proposals for Indigenous Community Media Youth Fellowships to support individuals or groups of young Indigenous communicators and artists to develop their communication skills (radio, audiovisual, print media) through specific training and other educational opportunities.
With years of experience coordinating capacity building efforts through workshops, conferences, radio station exchanges, facilitating the development of regional networks, and supporting advocacy efforts to legalize and democratize community media, Cultural Survival elevates the experience, assets, and expertise of the communities that they partner with through their Indigenous Community Media Fund. They believe that it is crucial to listen and respond to the self-determined needs of the communities in order to provide support that is sustainable and most importantly, pertinent to the needs of the community. Indigenous youth are the future of their communities and developing youth leadership is an integral part of ensuring communities’ well being.
