Nia Tero views fellowship opportunities as a pathway toward holistic networking and skill-building amongst Indigenous peoples in their specific fields. The overarching goal across all of our fellowship programs is to amplify and uplift Indigenous voices.
Nia Tero offers a suite of Creative Fellowship opportunities for Indigenous makers across disciplines to further their practice, be in community, build skills, and network - all with the goal of uplifting and amplifying Indigenous creatives. This includes all forms of storytelling, inclusive of filmmaking, journalism, advanced media production, and art.
The Leadership Fellows Program was established in 2018 to strengthen emergent leaders from Indigenous territories where Nia Tero partners with Indigenous organizations. The program was designed and modeled specifically after Indigenous teaching methods and concepts of leadership.
