As the covid-19 pandemic unfolds across the country and in communities, the result has been uncertainty for researchers, analysts, and creators generally, who have lost work. To help support those impacted, Yellowhead is launching A Call for Collaboration. Our hope is to boost the generation and mobilization of creative and intellectual content for communities.

The Call for Collaboration will commission community policy work from any medium and on any area of policy, widely defined. These might include:

  • Digital content ideas that you’d like to create for Yellowhead,
  • Content you’ve already created but that Yellowhead can help mobilize, or,
  • Projects that we can (virtually) collaborate together on.


The content can be writing, analysis, podcast, art, meme, photography, etc., and on any area of Indigenous policy (health, education, lands, climate, etc.). It can be research-based, interviews, documentary-style, or even personal reflections on policy. All styles and content-types are welcome!

If you have content or ideas that we can help mobilize, let’s collaborate!

Here are some ways that we can work together:

  • Recording, editing and producing a podcast with you
  • Creating infographics based on content you already have and helping to mobilize it via our channels
  • Publishing your writing/research with Yellowhead (editing support will be provided)
  • Featuring your artwork, photography, memes etc. on the Yellowhead site or in collaboration with upcoming research
  • Other….Send us your ideas!

Send us your ideas by filling out this online form. You will be asked to share your 50-250 word pitch, a brief biography including links to previous work and expected costs of creating or mobilizing the content. Available honorariums range from $50 – $500 (potentially more for larger projects). 

Yellowhead will assess pitches daily (and respond within 24-48 hours), prioritizing Indigenous creators, especially those who have lost work, need resources to get on the land, or need to self-isolate (please reference this in your pitch, where applicable).

Please note that payment will not be immediate: honorariums will take up to 4-6 weeks to process. 

You will be credited as the author or creator of any content shared with Yellowhead.
