The Future of First Nations, Inuit and M├ętis Broadcasting
on February 8,2017 by michael

This year - the second in the CRTC’s Three Year Plan (2016-2019) - the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission plans to review the Native Broadcasting Policy (CRTC 1990-89). The gatherings entitled “The Future of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Broadcasting: Conversation and Convergence” aim to bring practitioners, policy makers and academics together as allies and to prepare a context for respectful and meaningful consultations. Regional events will be held from February to May culminating in a national conference hosted in Ottawa from June 15-17.

The kick-off event will take place in Winnipeg at the University of Manitoba, Saint John’s College (92 Dysart Road), Room 108, on Friday, February 17, 2017, from 8am – 5pm.

Presenters in Winnipeg will include:

  • Rosanna Deerchild and Kim Wheeler, Storytelling on National Ikwe Radio
  • Gary Farmer and Kathleen Buddle, Aboriginal Voices Radio Network
  • Jim Compton, Adam Beach Film Institute and Engaging Indigenous Youth
  • MP Robert-Falcon Ouellette, At the Edge of Canada on UMFM
  • Lenard Monkman, Red Rising Magazine on print & internet publishing


Two sessions will focus on the CRTC Native Broadcasting Policy and the process for the upcoming policy review. Participants are invited to comment on the following questions:

  • How would you like the CRTC consultation process to be conducted?
  • How should the review process itself be changed?
  • What should the policy entail?
  • What are the elements to include or exclude?
  • What changes would be required to the Broadcasting Act, 1991, to ensure the policy is upheld?

The regional events are free and open to the public. Participants are invited to register online at www.IndigenousRadio.ca.

Music For Two Radios
on January 11,2017 by jared

We're extremely pleased that we will be taking part in the 2017 New Music Festival on February 2nd, as we co-present Music for Two Radios, a new 15 minute new music composition by Montreal's Ben Shemie. This performance is in collaboration with with our friends downtown at the U of W, CKUW! 

This composition is written as a duo for two radio stations. The two respective parts of the composition will be broadcast on 95.9 FM & 101.5 FM simultaneously on February 2nd, at 10:30pm sharp. Audiences are invited to tune into each radio station with two FM radios AT THE SAME TIME and listen to this composition.

This piece is free, analague, and available to anyone in the greater Winnipeg area with two FM radios. In collaboration with the Winnipeg New Music Festival and the Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art an installation/performance of the piece will be open to the public to experience at the downtown gallery. Multiple FM radios with be set up around the gallery spaces to create a live experience of this composition.

You are invited to bring your old FM radios to the gallery and add to the many FM radios that will be set up.

This happening subverts the ubiquitous medium of radio in a simple and transparent way, and is a uniquely Winnipeg experience available live only to people in the Winnipeg area.

This piece of music was made possible by the support of Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec
