The Indigenous Storyteller Edition is the beginning of an enduring investment in the careers of Indigenous creators residing in BC and Alberta. In this program, STORYHIVE will greenlight 20 Indigenous-led projects, selected by an all-Indigenous jury.
The design of this Edition was shaped by Indigenous creators who have been supported by STORYHIVE and TELUS and shared their feedback and experiences with an external consultant. Together, our goal is to facilitate a program that is culturally safe, empowering and relevant to the next generation of Indigenous creators.
The development of the Indigenous Storyteller Edition is also supported by an Indigenous Advisory Council. This group was invited to represent a wide spectrum of Indigeneity, regional representation, industry experience, and generational diversity.
The jury for this Edition is comprised of industry experts and TELUS team members, who are all Indigenous. The jury members will be announced in 2019.
