Projects

 

Here are some projects that we have been working on over the past years. Watch videos here

THE MAPUCHE SCHOOL OF FILMMAKING AND COMMUNICATION

We work with Mapuche communities in Chile to run a youth capacity building project. Participants learn to make short films using professional equipment and software, creating opportunities for intergenerational dialogue, revitalizing traditional knowledge and language and encouraging youths to take action on issues that affect them.   READ & WATCH

BUILDING A VIDEO PRODUCTION AND COMMUNICATIONS TEAM

We helped a coalition of several Indigenous fishing villages in Chile to set up a communications team for promoting their traditional territorial rights. We trained the team in video production using readily available technology and simple editing methods.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP TRAINING FOR INDIGENOUS WOMEN ARTISANS

We worked with a group of women weavers in Chile to initiate a project that is helping them create a local source of income from traditional handicraft. We worked together to identify priorities, build an organizational partnership for training and conduct a needs assessment.

THE POWER OF THE LENS: VIDEO-MEDIATED INDIGENOUS RESEARCH

This action research project is led by youth from three First Nations communities in Québec and three Indigenous communities in Panama, Chile and Norway. Young Indigenous researchers in each community are using video to gather stories and knowledge about territory, identity and traditional practices.   READ & WATCH

RECOVERING MAPUCHE ORALITY THROUGH PUPPETRY

We helped design and secure funding for a project that explored traditional storytelling, language and culture through photography, video and art with students at an Indigenous rural school in Chile.

REFLECTION, LEARNING & KNOWLEDGE SHARING WITH COMMUNITY FILMMAKING

We worked with two Indigenous communities in Chile and one First Nation in Québec to develop an action research project to address issues of environmental health, cultural continuity and access to territory, using documentary filmmaking and participatory mapping as tools.
