INdigenous Perspectives

INTerested in vr and film production?

Indigenous Perspectives was created to give youth the opportunity to get involved in their community while learning about something they love. Our goal is to raise awareness of Indigenous Culture practices and teachings through this mentorship program.

This program will involve a series of workshops designed to give participants the chance to learn more about film production and put the skills they learn into practice. Participants will work in their teams to develop a VR experience that can be used to teach about Indigenous culture and reconciliation.
