Multimedia storytelling with Indigenous youth and post-secondary students
Youth co-creation of a vision for sustainable development as a strategy toward reconciliation
The complementary skills and experiences of this team will allow us to engage youth from northern Indigenous communities to work (virtually) with Carleton students from multiple disciplines to articulate their shared vision of a sustainable future.
External partners contribute to initiating and strengthening relationships with communities and with youth.
The multiple disciplinary areas of expertise of our team reflect the three pillars of sustainable development. This provides a coherent framework that allows us to work together to develop pathways forward that embrace a holistic perspective using a Two-Eyed Seeing framework.
Multimedia storytelling can be a source of empowerment for Indigenous youth, and a collaborative co-creation process with post-secondary students can serve as a platform for mutual understanding, respect, and healing, and ultimately contributes to reconciliation. This research cluster was created to explore a unique approach for engaging Indigenous youth to collaborate with undergraduate students to co-create multimedia stories that provide insight into their shared understanding of issues relating to global sustainable development.
