Indigenous Digital Arts And Cultural Entrepreneurship Incubator

The Indigenous Digital Arts and Culture Incubator is an experimental urban and land-based arts, culture and training program for next-generation Indigenous art and technology talent.

Our experimental incubator model links youth and Elders, artists and entrepreneurs from northern and southern Canada to explore opportunities in digital and cultural entrepreneurship.

Exploring Cultural Entrepreneurship

This research enhances efforts in community entrepreneurship education and provides it in-person delivered by local instructors and synchronously online through teleconferencing infrastructure to an expanded set of northern, rural and urban communities.

With the end goal to incubate sustainable self-employment for aspiring talent, this grassroots pilot project builds upon existing and proven cultural entrepreneurship training to foster new arts industry employment through a careful balance of traditional knowledge and modern, digital technologies.
