UBC’s Residential School History and Dialogue Centre is looking for three self-identified Indigenous youth (ages 18-30) to participate in a new podcast pilot series.
The podcast will bring together youth and Elders for intergenerational dialogue about the legacies of residential schools and the ongoing impacts of colonialism in Canada.
Youth participants will receive training and support to work collaboratively to write and record the series, with support from RSHDC staff, Cited Media production company, an Indigenous Elder, and an emotional and cultural support worker.
Youth interested in media studies, storytelling, art, Indigenous activism and journalism, or podcasting are welcome to apply.
All levels of experience are welcome, and all participants will receive training and mentorship.
The project will take place over eight months from April to December 2021, with a time commitment of approximately 5 hours per week. All participants will receive an honorarium of $22 per hour.
