Tony Eetak re-connects with Jordan Konek, both from Arviat, Nunavut on campus at the University of Winnipeg during the Inuit Studies Conference earlier this month. Ten years ago this October, Jordan was a student with the original Nanisiniq Arviat History Project. This project draws on many of those early experiences.
Today, youth like Tony are able to learn from those past community-based projects and experiences as they explore what it means to feel included in northern research.
Technologies and opportunities that did not exist then for most northern communities are now able to be explored more meaningfully, such as our digital and cultural entrepreneurship incubator pilot project made possible with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Greenhouse program.
In the coming year they’ll be connecting with and learning from a diversity of new projects, communities and exciting collaborations.
