In 2019, Santiago Guzmán, founder & Artistic Director of TODOS Productions, participated in the first-ever Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ NL Program SEED Funding Competition. The objective of the SEED Funding Competition was to support the development of international student entrepreneur business ventures from ideation to commercialization in the province. After pitching TODOS Productions to a selected jury of local entrepreneurs, Guzmán was awarded $5,000 in seed funding to help accelerate the startup phase of their business in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Since then, TODOS Productions has actively tried to create artistic initiatives and platforms for emerging, diverse artists in our provinces that have something to say.

- LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT -
TODOS Productions operates from St. John’s, Ktaqmkuk (colonially known as Newfoundland) and Labrador. We acknowledge Ktaqmkuk as the unceded and ancestral territory of the Beothuk and the Mi’kmaq; and Labrador as the traditional homelands of the Innu of Nitassinan, Inuit of Nunatsiavut, and the Inuit of NunatuKavut. We recognize all First Peoples who were here before us, those who live with us now, and the seven generations to come. We recognize that it is our duty to learn about the caretakers of this province who have been looking after the land and water before us, and we strive to work consciously and respectfully with them to support one another in solidarity and love.
