Calls for Proposals: Research on funding for Indigenous artists, arts groups, and arts organizations (ArtsNL, Newfoundland and Labrador)

ArtsNL is reissuing the request for proposals from individuals willing to travel to the territories of the province’s five main Indigenous groups in order to help ArtsNL determine the best way to deliver funding within its mandate that targets the specific needs of Indigenous artists, arts groups and arts organizations in those territories. The successful candidate will contact the Qalipu, Miawpukek, and Innu First Nations, as well as the NunatuKavut and Nunatsiavut governments, for permission to conduct this research, and set up public meetings with interested community members. Some research will also be conducted in St. John’s and Corner Brook with artists who self-identify as Indigenous.

To determine the specific needs of the project, the consultant will:

  • Meet with the ArtsNL’s Indigenous Advisory Committee to draft a list of questions and discussion points that can be brought to the artists, arts groups, and arts organizations in their communities;
  • Contact Indigenous governments to set up travel and meeting schedules, according to what makes best sense for the communities and the travel budget;
  • Meet again with ArtsNL’s Indigenous Advisory Committee before conducting site visits;
  • Travel and conduct meetings, interviews, community forms/focus groups. This will require site visits to approximately 12-15 communities in Newfoundland and Labrador. Travel expenses incurred with these site visits will be paid for by ArtsNL;
  • Write a draft research report and make recommendations to ArtsNL based on the feedback gathered through the consultation process;
  • Meet with the ArtsNL Indigenous Advisory Committee to discuss the draft research report;
  • Make an in-person presentation of the final approved report to ArtsNL.”
