Team Grant : Indigenous Gender and Wellness Team Grant

This third and final phase will provide funding for Indigenous-led teams to implement their ideas through research and action-oriented, community-based participatory projects that will improve wellness for Indigenous Peoples from a gendered perspective. Some possible examples of community-based participatory projects might include but are not limited to: projects with a focus on the arts as a means to improving wellness from a gendered lens (e.g., visual, music, dance, theatre, literary or media, including contemporary practice of traditionally-based forms); or participatory programs that focus on and strengthen the relationship between gender, wellness and cultural traditions and activities (e.g., ceremony, land-based activities).

Note: Team Grants will not be restricted to those who received a Development Grant in Phase 2 of this initiative. However, at least one team member must have attended the Idea Fair and Learning Circle in June 2019.
