The sākihiwē Export Accelerator is a new project that is being produced by Aboriginal Music Manitoba (we/us) and Manitoba Music, with support from the Canada Council for the Arts. The project will run for two years, 2024 and 2025, and give 10 Indigenous artists/groups who live in Canada a chance to film performance videos, learn about music festivals and concert series in four countries (Mexico, Germany, the United Kingdom, and Canada), schedule online meetings with music presenters from those countries, and provide feedback about the project.

First Nation, Inuit, and Métis solo artists and bands/groups who live in Canada are invited to submit an application to participate.

The application deadline for the sākihiwē Export Accelerator is Thursday, January 18, 2024 at 11:59 PM P.S.T. (full details).

We acknowledge the Government of Canada, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Arts Council, and the Winnipeg Arts Council for their financial support.
