ISO is pleased to announce the launch of the Partnership Program– a funding program created to address the business continuity needs of Indigenous creators at all career stages during the COVID-19 crisis.
Any questions related to the program can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Partnership Program supports online training and learning, workforce development, training programs, and innovation strategies to support Indigenous screen creators during the coronavirus pandemic, and initiatives that expand the capacity of Canada’s Indigenous screen-based sector. This program recognizes that learning and training are a critical component to ensuring the continued momentum and sustainability for the Indigenous screen sector during an unpredictable and economically unstable period.
Applications must be completed in the ISO portal (APPLY HERE) and may be submitted until the funding runs out.
If you have barriers to access including but not limited to language, internet, or physical barriers, please contact the ISO to determine appropriate accommodations and support at email@example.com.
