I AM FROM THE NORTH
What does it mean to be from the North?
In 2021, we partnered with Reel Youth to help people across the Inuinnait region of Nunavut make their perspectives and voices be heard about what the North means to them. Through online coaching and workshops, participants from Cambridge Bay, Kugluktuk, Gjoa Haven and Uluhaktok learned the principles of film making, and practiced media production skills by shooting and editing original short video documentaries with a focus on climate change. The resulting videos provide valuable insight into the lives of our region's youth and adults, how they connect to their landscape, and how these deeply rooted identities are being challenged by the uncertainties of a dramatically changing climate.
