We are thrilled to announce the relaunch of our long-standing Aboriginal Voices grant into a new mentorship fund aimed at encouraging new indigenous talent. In 2014, with the support of the Community Foundation of Ottawa, SAW Video consulted with past and present grant recipients to determine parameters for a newly expanded grant, using the template of our JumpstART Mentorship program.

SAW Video’s Indigenous Voices Mentorship Fund provides production support for emerging First Nations, Métis and Inuit media artists who wish to explore the creative potential of video. In addition to monetary and equipment support, the fund offers a mentorship component aimed at supporting emerging artists as they make their first independent work.  Two grants will be awarded per year.  Participants will have one year to make their videos and will be assigned a mentor whose role is to advise them throughout the process.

Deadline to apply is October 1st - click here for details
