BSO believes who tells the story is as important as the story itself, so we partnered with TELUS STORYHIVE to launch the Black Creators Edition this February and amplify the voices of Black content creators in western Canada. Here, recipients of the Black Creators Edition funding offer their perspectives on the value of sharing our own stories.
About Black Screen Office (BSO)
BSO’s goals are to make Canada’s screen industries’ practices and policies equitable and free of anti-Black racism; to work collaboratively with decision-makers to develop tools and strategies that enable system-level engagement and accountability; and to empower Black Canadians working within the screen industries to thrive and share their stories.
