What if my region isn’t listed, but I live in BC or Alberta?
You must be a resident of one of the aforementioned communities in British Columbia or Alberta to be eligible for STORYHIVE funding.
In BC and Alberta, TELUS's contribution to community programming and local expression (STORYHIVE) is regulated by the CRTC. Each market in western Canada has an "allowable contribution" which dictates the amount of funding TELUS can distribute as grants there. Unfortunately in some markets, no funding is available at this time.
If your community is not listed above, this does not prevent you from participating in STORYHIVE Editions in other ways. You are welcome to join other STORYHIVE projects as a team member.
NOTE: If you are a resident of an Indigenous community close to one of these listed communities, please reach out to us at email@example.com to verify your eligibility.
What our BC and Alberta content creators are saying about us
I never thought of myself as a content creator or storyteller, so to have this passion of Her Love Of Sports and to have STORYHIVE support it meant so much to me.
[STORYHIVE] definitely made it clear that they wanted us to succeed and more than anything, were willing to help get us there and help us grow in the process.
Through my Voices series we have been able to do something so outside of the box it is incredible. I am so thankful that STORYHIVE has been with me throughout the whole journey.
My experience with STORYHIVE was positive in being able to tell my story, my way.
