APTN is conducting a National Indigenous Music Impact Study (NIMIS), the first of its kind in Canada. The study will look at the challenges and successes that the Indigenous music community faces, and will estimate the economic contributions and other impacts that this community has on Canada.
APTN and its partners are leading this project and will engage with those involved in the Indigenous music community, including anyone (Indigenous or non-Indigenous) who creates, promotes and supports Indigenous music in Canada. The results of this study will be made public and shared widely with organizations who support the community.
“Indigenous musicians and their supporters are involved in every facet of the music and television industry across the country. Yet, no national study has ever been conducted about the impact of the Indigenous music community,” said Jean La Rose, APTN CEO. “The results of this endeavour will help APTN and its partners better understand the current state of the Indigenous music community, as well as identify opportunities that will foster its success and growth.”
Participants may be asked to take part in phone interviews, group discussions and an online survey. Those who complete the survey could win cash prizes. Draw dates are Jan. 14, 2019 and Feb. 18, 2019, with the chance to win $1,000 from each draw. The survey must be completed before Jan. 14, 2019 in order for the participant to be entered in both draws.
