This week we were fortunate to be able to spend time visiting the Aabijijiwan New Media Lab during Auviqsaqtut, this year’s Inuit Studies Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We also got to learn a lot about the work being done by the Inuit Futures in Arts Leadership: The Pilimmaksarniq / Pijariuqsarniq Project.

A highlight for our digital and cultural entrepreneurship project has been being able to visit and experience a lot of different places and spaces we were not able to visit in person for the last few years.

The Aabijijiwan New Media Lab and Kishaadigeh Collaborative Research Centre at the University of Winnipeg are collaborative spaces centred on Indigenous methodologies and terrific examples of the kinds of spaces we’d like to see on other campuses and communities.

We’re very thankful for being able to visit and check out the amazing and creative spaces they have. For more information, visit their web site here: https://aabijijiwanmedialab.ca.
