Applications are now being accepted for A UNIQUE MESSAGING AND COMMUNICATIONS FELLOWSHIP RUN BY AND FOR FIRST NATIONS PEOPLE.
How do we move beyond statistics and deficits in our campaigning, and create messages that the general public are receptive to, so we can win on our issues?
The First Nations Messaging and Communications Fellowship is for 15-20 First Nations communicators, working across a diversity of issues, to learn how to research and develop messaging, and shift the narrative on any issue.
Over two residential retreats and three webinars it will cover messaging and framing, combatting opposition messaging, narrative development, message research, media and digital communications.
