Cultural Survival has launched 2nd call for proposals for Indigenous community radio stations to acquire transmitters and complementary equipment. The maximum grant amount awarded will be $4000 USD.
Cultural Survival advocates for Indigenous Peoples’ rights and supports Indigenous communities’ self-determination, cultures and political resilience since 1972. They promote the creations, visions, and dissemination of communication initiatives from the perspectives, experiences, and knowledge of Indigenous Peoples.
The deadline for submitting proposals is July 3, 2021.
This call for proposals seeks to strengthen the communication capacity of community radio stations in the regions where Cultural Survival works, including Latin America, Africa, and Asia. Additionally, this call for proposals is specifically geared towards those radio stations that have demonstrated work in the area of revitalization of Indigenous languages, and to those that have promoted access to and educational outreach to Indigenous youth within their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These grants will support projects in the field of Indigenous community radio that meet the following criteria:
- Promote educational practices via community radio, literacy, and remote education during the pandemic, especially where Indigenous communities have difficulty accessing the internet.
- Strengthen and use Indigenous languages within their programs.
- Radio stations that have recently started similar projects which are ongoing for at least 6 months, and are developing content geared towards children will be considered.
- Indigenous community radio stations.
- Indigenous organizations and collectives working on collaborative radio productions.
