The Shine Network Institute (TSNI) is committed to knowledge gathering and knowledge sharing, understanding that culturally informed research practices will deepen our understanding of the needs within the communities we serve.

We are committed to dismantling systemic and structural barriers Indigenous women, gender-diverse, and Two-Spirit people face in the screen sector and creating pathways to advancing their careers while creating safer spaces for all Indigenous Peoples in the industry.

We must uplift, protect and celebrate the voices and perspectives of Indigenous women, gender-diverse, and Two-Spirit people. There are too few of us working behind and in front of the camera. Those you read about are doing incredible and important work yet represent less than 1% of Canadian content creators receiving funding. When that changes, we will witness a monumental shift in our collective narrative and we will all be better for it.
