Cultural Survival’s Community Media Program announces its sixth call for proposals for Indigenous community radio projects.

The Indigenous Community Media Fund supports community radio and other media platforms run by Indigenous Peoples as tools to strengthen their broadcast infrastructure and systems, and provide training opportunities in journalism, broadcasting, audio editing, technical skills, and more to Indigenous community radio journalists and media producers around the world.

The purpose of the Indigenous Community Media Fund is to strengthen the impact and influence of Indigenous radio through improvements in radio station infrastructure, internal organization, programming, political and community advocacy, new and better production capacities, as well as systematization of successful management experiences.

The Fund supports stations in revitalizing Indigenous cultures, identities, languages, histories, worldviews, and promoting Indigenous rights, the protection of ancestral territories and natural resources, as well as in elevating the leadership of women and youth communicators.
