NOW HIRING: Red Jam Slam Ottawa Coordinator

As part of our Resonating Reconciliation project, that uses community radio to address the legacy of Indian Residential Schools for all Canadians, we are also presenting five Red Jam Slams across Canada, in partnership with the Red Jam Slam Society.

We've already had slams in VancouverEdmontonWinnipeg, a special radio-based Red Jam Slam festival, and now: Ottawa! The Red Jam Slam Ottawa Coordinator will organize a Red Jam Slam in Ottawa on November 8th that addresses the legacy of Indian Residential Schools by showcasing Indigenous artists in multiple fields, from music, to comedy, to film and more.

The event is planned for Friday, November 8th because its Aboriginal Veterans Day and the theme is inter-generational Residential School survivors and their stories. The deadline for applications is Friday, October 4th at midnight and the full job description can be found here.

This project was funded by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and the department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada.
