Meet our grantee:
The Barcid Foundation
The Barcid Foundation is a nonprofit media arts organization founded by writer-producer Ian Skorodin to foster understanding of the culture, traditions, and issues of Native Americans. With the goal of creating a genuine and mutually beneficial relationship between the Native American community and the entertainment industry, Barcid offers Native writers the training, resources, and access necessary to forge relationships and pursue a career in the entertainment industry. Funding from the Collaborative will support Barcid to 1) continue its Native American Writers Room project, and 2) develop a long-term strategic plan for a Native-led content development and production company.
